The companies in Haywards Heath Town Team’s Burrell Road Business Park Group have joined forces with the District Council to put the Group and its tenants well and truly on the map, as well as making the area as attractive as befits one of our premier business locations.
As Nick Green, General Manager at Flowserve, says: “Following the success of the World War I Garden at one end of the Park, we decided we needed a Welcome sign at the other end, as well as a Directory of the companies located here.
Following this, of course, the next step was to make sure the Park was ‘green’!”
Enter the Mid Sussex District Council, who agreed to provide the signage while the companies clubbed together to raise funds to provide planters and gardens to provide colour and greenery for all those working there and, of course, their visitors.
They enlisted the help of John Blackholly and his students at Oathall Community College and, with their wonderful knowledge and support, the Business Park has bloomed – in more ways than one.
“We’re proud of our Burrell Road Business Park,” says John McMenamin of The Nuffield Hospital. “The location is just perfect, the high-value skills are here and Haywards Heath is a good town for any business. We’re very grateful to both the Council and our friends at Oathall College!”
The project, however, couldn’t have been accomplished without the help and support of the District Council but, as Deputy Leader & Economic Development Cabinet Member, Gary Marsh, says: “Our aim is to help grow the local economy and the commitment shown by these Town Team companies is just the kind of partnership we’re delighted to be able to help.”
