Creating A Destination

One of the major catalysts for growth and visible signs of regeneration in Burgess Hill will be NewRiver’s £65m proposed regeneration of Burgess Hill town centre.

NewRiver REIT accrued the lease at The Martlets in 2012, and a design for the regeneration of Burgess Hill Town centre has now been submitted. On completion this will provide a lively and vibrant town centre. As part of the regeneration project, Lidl has already relocated to the former gas holder site on Leyland Road and its new store is now open.

The exciting regeneration plans for the town centre will be of enormous benefit to Burgess Hill, creating a thriving and vibrant hub for people who live, work and visit the town.

The redevelopment will bring new dining facilities featuring popular brands and restaurants including Next and Nando’s. The plans will also see a 10-screen multiplex Cineworld cinema, 142 new homes, a 63 bed Travelodge hotel, 174 additional car parking spaces, improved public realm and a new purpose-built library. The scheme will not only create new job opportunities for the local community, but will also act as a catalyst for further growth for the whole town.

The scheme is being brought forward by NewRiver REIT who are one of the UK’s largest owners of convenience-led community assets with a portfolio of £1.2 billion comprising 33 UK-wide shopping centres, 18 retail warehouses, 11 high street assets and a portfolio of 336 pubs.
