News: WSCC Seeking Business Guidance

Posted on 5th July 2018

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

Testimonials

"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. "

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

Mike Oliver, Owner

"“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.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
