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.

"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."
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"“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.”"
"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."
