Even though it’s been reasonably dry over the festive season, thank goodness, you’ll recall the very heavy rainfall in December which led to significant flooding locally, including on the Victoria Business Park on Albert Drive.
We have arranged to meet Richard Speller and Tim Boxall from WSCC as they are responsible for the Highways in the Mid Sussex area, on Thursday 9th January, along with representatives of some of the businesses most at risk of their premises flooding in Albert Drive, to discuss the situation and hopefully find a practical way forward.
If anyone not currently invited to the meeting on the 9th wants to know more, do get in touch with me at email@example.com
As we make progress, I’ll keep readers posted.
"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."
"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. "
"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."
