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:
"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."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
