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 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."
"“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.""
"“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”"
"“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! ” "
