Since the plans for the new town centre have been produced there has been much discussion, debate and concern in Burgess Hill about the loss of a community space with the demolition of the Martlets Hall. There are no plans by the developer for a replacement building, as such. Lots of local people who used the Martlets complex for all sorts of activities have voiced concerns about this situation.
As a result the Town Council has done some work towards the idea of developing a new Community and Performance Venue in the town.
You can read the full details of progress on the BHTC website here
It looks like an exciting development for the town, and you can have your say about the project by emailing this address NewPerformanceVenue@burgesshill.gov.uk
"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."
"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. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"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."
