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
"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. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“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.""
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
