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.
"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."
"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. "
"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."
"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."
