(Position at November 2018)
The A2300 links Burgess Hill to the A23/M23 strategic road corridor and is an important route for people commuting to and from Burgess Hill.
In 2011, Mid Sussex District Council’s Transport Study identified that the A2300 would require improvements to increase its capacity to support the planned development in Burgess Hill. West Sussex County Council (WSCC) subsequently commissioned a feasibility study to explore possible improvement options.
Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (C2C LEP) identified Burgess Hill as a priority in its 2014 Strategic Economic Plan with the objective of generating economic growth through housing and employment.
£17m was allocated by central government through the C2CLEP Local Growth Deal as a contribution to the A2300 corridor improvements scheme, conditional on delivering the business case and value for money. WSCC is the scheme promoter and responsible for delivering the scheme.
The public engagement process has now closed and we thank you for taking time to visit the drop-in sessions and complete the questionnaire.
We are now considering your feedback on Phase 1 proposals and where possible, we will consider enhancements to the proposals.
We will also be reviewing your suggestions about the development of further phases of sustainable transport improvements to the west of Burgess Hill.
A summary report on the public engagement will be published in early 2019.
