Town Centre Regeneration - NewRiver REIT
The £65m regeneration of Burgess Hill will not only include new shops and restaurants but will also deliver 142 new homes right in the heart of the town.
The scheme is being brought forward by NewRiver REIT who are one of the UK’s largest owners of convenience-led community shopping centres.
Planning permission for the scheme was granted in March 2016 and preparation works on the site currently underway for construction. You can find further information about the Burgess Hill town centre regeneration project by clicking here.
The town centre improvements will also include improved access arrangements for Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield train stations alongside discussions with Network Rail about what further improvements can be made to improve station capacity. This will help ensure that services for commuters and residents continue to provide great links to coastal towns and London; as well as facilitating inward travel from surrounding areas with high quality links from the stations to key destinations.
Better Links To Your Town Centre
The £21.8m package of transport improvements for the town centre will deliver more sustainable transport infrastructure to improve connectivity.
This will include new and enhanced pedestrian and cycle routes linking the town centre with existing and proposed residential and employment areas across Burgess Hill with on-going links to Hassocks and Haywards Heath, more accessible pedestrian routes within the town centre as part of the £65m town centre regeneration scheme; and improvements to bus services and bus stop infrastructure.
