If interested you should have a look at the details here of the visions, themes and discussions about economic strategy on the part of MSDC. You are invited to make comments about these details if you so wish …
The other document is too large to send out with this newsletter, but you can see that presentation or add your thoughts by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or Gordon.email@example.com . These are issues which directly affect business in Mid Sussex. A small number of us went to the presentation two weeks ago and gave them our views and opinions.
Draft Vision and Priority Themes
“Mid Sussex: an attractive place for businesses and people to grow and succeed.”
The Priority Themes underpinning the Vision focus on places, premises, people and promotion:
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
