Landmark New Employment Space
The Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership has identified Burgess Hill as a spatial priority and has committed to significant investment in the town to deliver new jobs, homes and employment space.
To drive forward greater business investment in the town and in partnership with the private sector, we will deliver 25 hectares of new employment space in the town creating thousands of new high value jobs in technology-led industries, and making Burgess Hill one of the most attractive places in the region to do business.
Burgess Hill and the wider Mid Sussex area has over 7,000 businesses and was identified as the most economically resilient local authority area in the region during the economic downturn of 2010. The District has the lowest level of unemployment in the county and sits within the Gatwick Diamond growth area.
Plans are currently being delivered and we have already given outline planning consent for the first of our major employment developments, The Hub.
Located in the western business growth corridor south of the A2300, The Hub will provide up to 50,000sqm of employment space, of which up to 14,000sqm will be for distribution and warehousing, with much of the remainder expected to be technology-led businesses offering sustainable high value jobs. You can find further information on The Hub by visiting the dedicated project website by clicking here
