West Sussex County Council is seeking the views of local business owners and residents to help inform its budgeting cycle for the next two years.
So far we have heard from around 25 businesses or organisations in West Sussex – but we would like to hear from more!
Can you help us, please?
As there are just two weeks left to participate, we are emailing you to ask if you would kindly share the message provided below with your business contacts. This will help to raise awareness of the ‘What Matters To You?’ survey. It will also help us to ensure we hear the voice of business who want to be heard.
Please help us if you can – we really do want to know what our local businesses think – and our residents of course.
Businesses in West Sussex: What Matters To You?
Businesses in West Sussex: What Matters to You? There are just over two weeks left for you to fill in our survey and let us know
If you own a business in West Sussex or you live in the County, please take part in our survey and tell us what matters to you!
Your answers will help shape West Sussex County Council’s future priorities and inform how the budget is set for 2019/20.
The survey asks for your views on service priorities in the West Sussex Plan, and seeks your opinion on future Council Tax levels.
Helping us to understand your priorities can help others too! By taking part you can nominate a registered West Sussex Charity to win a £500 donation in our Prize Draw.

Closing date for both surveys: Monday 16 July
"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. "
"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."
"“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! ” "
"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."
