BURGESS HILL's voice of local business

The BHBPA is a ‘not for profit’ company established to pursue the common business interests of our membership, speak with a coherent voice on local business matters and contribute positively to the wider local community. We view business as a key enabler of society at large and our local communities in particular.

meet some of our members

The membership base of BHBPA is wonderfully varied. Every business & organisation that is a member of BHBPA has a story to tell, as well as offering products and services that are highly relevant to their chosen customer segments.

Our members include global household brands, award winning domestic and international businesses as well as numerous local service providers. While some are part of huge multinational businesses, others are thriving owner / managed companies based purely in Burgess Hill. Some are sales distributors for renowned brands marketing products that we all rely on, yet others are industry innovators with specialist capabilities. Collectively our members ‘put Burgess Hill on the map’.

Obviously the pandemic is stressing many businesses and business owners, but there is help available to try to support local businesses.

Mid Sussex District Council fully recognises that knowing what to apply for and how can be a challenge. In order to help the local business community MSDC is hosting a webinar at 1pm on Wednesday 20th January 2021 to try and make the help that is available simpler to understand and to advise you how to apply.

The session will cover Covid-19 business and discretionary grants as well as information on business rates reliefs. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

The session will be chaired by the Council Leader, Jonathan Ash-Edwards. The Council's Business Unit Leader for Revenues and Benefits, Kevin Stewart, will present the information and answer any questions.

If you would like to attend please email covid19grants@midsussex.gov.uk giving your name, business name and type of business.

On Thursday, 19th November 2020 several members reported siting of suspicious traders offering 'cheap' tarmac services. Buyers beware. 

Choose the correct option:

  • Option 1 – If there’s immediate risk to safety treat the incident as an emergency and call 999
  • Option 2 – If the threat is NOT immediate, call 101
  • Option 3 – For matters of a more preventative nature that require local police involvement call 01273 470101

In all cases make a note of the Police case number, known as the CAD reference and please inform the Coordinator on martyn@bhbpa.co.uk
