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.

"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."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"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. "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
