Matters

Place and Connectivity public engagement

Place and ConnectivityWe are currently working with West Sussex County Council to deliver a Place and Connectivity Programme in Burgess Hill that will provide significant infrastructure improvements and link key destinations in the town.

The Programme is designed to support the Burgess Hill Growth Programme, which includes approximately 5,000 homes (30% affordable) employment opportunities, three new schools, health provision, sports and leisure opportunities as well as new roads and bridges.

Over £21 million of Government and developer funding has been secured for the Place and Connectivity programme to create improved, high quality walking and cycling routes and public spaces to and through the town.

Proposals include the creation of new pedestrian and cycle paths linking Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath, enhancement of the Burgess Hill Green Circle network and improvements at both Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield train stations. Real time passenger information will be provided to residents at bus stops using electronic notice boards and there will be significant improvements to pedestrian and cycle routes around the town.

The coronavirus outbreak means it is not currently possible to host a public exhibition so we have provided all the relevant information for you to view online at http://www.burgesshill.net/placeandconnectivity

We would like to hear your views about these projects so please visit the website and let us know what you think by completing the online feedback form provided. Our online platform will be live until 25 June 2020.

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) reopened Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRS) across West Sussex on Monday 11th May.

Although the waste sites are open, WSCC is asking you to consider if your journey is absolutely essential before making the trip. 

From Monday 1st June, the range of items will be extended to include garden waste, general household waste, wood, cardboard, electrical items, bulky items, and furniture. The HWRS are currently unable to accept soil / hardcore, plasterboard, asbestos, tyres or textiles for the time being. ID will be required from all vehicles attending site

Vans and pickups will be permitted on the sites, but will need to display their WSCC permit to access the site. Trailers will continue to be rejected for the time being due to the operational changes made to sites.

Normal summer opening hours will be in operation. Once at the sites there will be certain measures in place for the safety of visitors and staff.
