News: Albert Drive Flood Meeting

Posted on 31st December 2019

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

As we make progress, I’ll keep readers posted.

"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."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"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."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"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."

Nick Broom, Managing Director
(PVL UK Ltd)

"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."
