While global warming seems to be affecting our weather at an increasingly alarming rate, as we move into the depths of winter, the risk of snow and icy roads is still a real threat to carrying out normal business activities as well as personal safety.
I have been sent a map (to be made available for viewing, along with the covered road names) in the early January 2020 newsletter) which shows the major roads around Burgess Hill (marked in green) and the business park roads (marked in blue) that WSCC is committed to gritting in the event of icy conditions.
There’s also a red square designating the solitary County Council maintained salt bin in the area.
I was surprised to see that neither the route of York Road / top end of Charles Avenue / Jubilee Road / Consort Road on the Victoria Business Park, nor the Sheddingdean Business Park altogether, appear to be in-scope for WSCC gritting.
Whether or not this is correct I’ll double check, but if members have any additional comments / questions do drop me a line.

"“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”"
"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 have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"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."
