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.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"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. "
"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."
"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."
