The Sussex Property Alliance (SPA) provides a forum where property professionals from our area can get together, exchange ideas and build relationships along the property supply chain. Attendees include investors, builders, developers, architects, planners, raw & building material suppliers and other relevant businesses.

The SPA has been created through a partnership comprising Michael Jones, MHA Carpenter Box Chartered Accountants and Bennett Griffin Solicitors.

Since its formation in 2013, we have had regular high profile guest speakers who have visited and spoken to our members on hot topics across the county. These include:

  • Mark Berrisford-Smith, Chief Economist from HSBC Bank
  • Alison Addy and Emma Rees from the ‘Gatwick second runway bid’
  • Tim Hague from Shoreham Harbour regeneration
  • Rob Fraser, Head of Planning Strategy at Brighton and Hove City Council
  • Eleanor Harris, Chief Executive of the Brighton i360
  • Martin Perry, Executive Director of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club
  • Scott Marshall, former Head of Economic Development at both Brighton & Hove City Council and Adur District Council

Our events are quarterly and free to attend, with lunch and refreshments provided. If you would like more information or to receive an invitation to our next SPA event, you can register online or call Steve Berrett, Commercial Director at Michael Jones on 01903 201212.

Membership Criteria: To register as a member of the SPA you need to work within the property profession or in a closely allied trade. The forum is not an open networking group and we wish to discourage the use of the forum as a selling opportunity for third parties.
