News: A2300 Drop in Sessions

Posted on 26th September 2018

INVITATION – Remaining drop-in sessions at the Hickstead Hotel and Hurstpierpoint Village Centre

 

On behalf of West Sussex County Council, I have the pleasure of inviting you to the two remaining drop-in session about our proposals to improve the A2300 Corridor.

 

To ease congestion and make the journeys safer and more reliable, we propose to improve the A2300 corridor by widening the road from single to dual carriageway and will provide a footway/ cycleway along the northern verge from Burgess Hill to the A2300/ A23 interchange and the National Cycle Network. The improvements will reduce congestion, facilitate growth and improve access to employment opportunities.

 

Phase 1 of the A2300 Corridor improvements scheme will deliver over £20m investment in highways, and help to unlock significant improvements to Burgess Hill. It will attract over £1bn of inward investment into the wider area.

 

It is part of a wider package of investment in local infrastructure being delivered as part of the Burgess Hill Strategic Growth Programme that will facilitate the transformative change of the town through significant improvements in housing, jobs, infrastructure, social and community facilities.

 

The Burgess Hill Strategic Growth Programme is supported by all tiers of government and was established in the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership Strategic Economic Plan, Mid Sussex District

Plan and also the Burgess Hill Town-wide strategy.

Testimonials

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"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. "
