New mayor for the Town Council

Good to see Cllr Peter Chapman elected as the new Mayor of Burgess Hill at tonight’s Town Council meeting, with Cllr Janice Henwood joined by Cllr Tofojjul Hussain as joint Deputy Mayors with unanimous support from all political parties. The Liberal Democrat controlled council tonight gave its support to providing funding for Sussex Clubs for Young People and the Escape Youth Club, who in conjunction with the Town Council have submitted proposals to West Sussex County Council to manage the Park Centre. This would safeguard and enhance youth and community facilities for the town – although still waiting for a formal decision from the County Council on the proposal. The outcome of a tender to demolish the British Legion building was also agreed, which is the first stage of the Town Council’s proposals for the Beehive, which aims to provide a new performing arts centre for the town.
