1. Where can I find more information?
NewRiver are working closely with the Council and the project team is happy to answer any queries about the development of Burgess Hill town centre. If you have any questions, you can contact them via:
You can find further information regarding the development on the Martlets website.
This will be regularly updated with all the latest news and upcoming plans to rejuvenate the town centre.
2. Will there be traffic disruption?
As with all major developments, there will be an impact on local infrastructure, particularly as construction equipment arrives on site. NewRiver will always give local residents as much notice as they can of upcoming road closures or traffic disruptions, and endeavour to keep this to an absolute minimum for the duration of the construction works.
3. How will NewRiver manage the disruption that will be caused?
Construction will inevitably cause some disruption and disturbance, but NewRiver will do their upmost to minimise this wherever possible. They are committed to working with residents and businesses to minimise the impacts of these works on the local community and their contractors will be required to adhere to the "Considerate Contractors Scheme", which encourages best practice beyond statutory requirements. NewRiver will do their best to keep residents informed of forthcoming works, and any periods of increased activity.
They will put forward a detailed Construction Management Plan to mitigate any potential disruption and will work with the Council to ensure that this is implemented prior to the commencement of development.
4. When will the shops close?
The remaining shops at the Martlets Shopping Centre are currently operating on short-term leases of varying lengths and will close at different times to provide flexibility for the programme of works.
