Mid Sussex District Council invests in Queens Crescent car park extension

PR2084/CO/MF - 09/01/2017

Mid Sussex District Council has created an extra 54 long stay parking spaces at the Queens Crescent car park in Burgess Hill.

The Queens Crescent car park is less than a five minute walk from both Burgess Hill town centre and Burgess Hill railway station, making it ideal long-stay parking for workers, shoppers and commuters. The expansion takes the total number of car parking spaces available at Queens Crescent to 204.

“Burgess Hill is about to embark on a huge period of investment, with new housing developments already underway and improved business space all set to be built in the near future,” said Councillor Gary Marsh, Mid Sussex District Council Cabinet Member for Service Delivery.

“And with NewRiver Retail’s exciting plans to attract big name shops, restaurants and leisure providers to Martlets Shopping centre, the town centre will be at the very heart of Burgess Hill’s transformation.

“Last year we added 100 extra parking spaces at Cyprus Road car park and we’ve now created another 54 at Queens Crescent. These extra spaces will ensure there’s plenty of parking available in the town while these improvements are made and more space will be available for all the people who are attracted to the new look Burgess Hill.”

Drivers are reminded that they can save hundreds of pounds every year by purchasing a season ticket at Queens Crescent. An annual ticket works out at just £2.12 per day, a saving of £490 per year for those who park five days a week.
