Following the article in newsletter last week regarding the new A2300 Developments, I have received a note from the Planning Department at MSDC advising that there were some inaccuracies in that report. This is the note they sent addressing those concerns…
In the most recent issue of the BHBPA newsletter (dated 30 January) an article entitled “Developments on A2300” contained a number of inaccuracies.
It should be noted that, in response to the letter sent from the BHBPA to the Leader of the Council prior to Christmas, Council officers met with Homes England to specifically discuss freehold employment space as part of the Northern Arc development. The Council is particularly conscious of the demand for freehold employment space from local businesses and is working closely with Homes England on this issue now. More information on the employment space will become available as the planning process moves forward over the coming weeks and months. Council officers will look to share this information with the BHBPA and local businesses to keep you sighted on news about future employment space opportunities.
Further information on this topic will come directly from the Council in the future.
"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."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"“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! ” "
"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."
