DPD, a parcel delivery brand, has taken up 4,000m2 of land in Burgess Hill.
Councillor Jonathan Ash-Edwards, Mid Sussex District Council’s deputy leader, said: “I am delighted that work is now underway at this site.
“When complete, The Hub will offer much needed industrial, warehouse and office space to aid the economic growth of our district.
“Local businesses have long been asking for more office and warehouse space.
“This development will help address these concerns and is another exciting step towards a better future.”
The Hub is part of a Burgess Hill Growth Programme that will deliver significant development and investment over the next 15 years.
This includes 5,000 new homes, new schools, gigabit capable full fibre broadband, a second new business park, regeneration of the town centre, investment in sustainable transport infrastructure and the region’s first science and technology park.
The Hub will provide up to 50,000m2 of employment space, of which up to 14,000m2 will be for distribution and warehousing.
Much of the remainder is expected to be technology-led businesses offering sustainable high value jobs.
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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. "
"“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.""
"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."
