Burgess Hill review proceeds despite Conservative opposition

Thanks to a massive response from local residents, the petition to call for a Community Governance Review was signed by 3,000 residents and the next stage commenced with Mid Sussex District Council forced to conduct a formal six week consultation with the residents of Burgess Hill and Ansty which ends on 3rd June. When this exercise is completed draft recommendations will be made & there will be further consultation on these in the summer. The final recommendations go to full MSDC Council in September this year.  However the logic is clear that the Burgess Hill Northern Arc belongs in Burgess Hill and the original officer recommendation for boundary changes is upheld.  This exercise has cost tens of thousands of pounds of tax payers money in the notifications sent to residents and officer time, all because Conservative Council continue to take exception to Burgess Hill – do respond to the consultation – see the Town Council’s response here, and the Mid Sussex consultation page here.
