Support the project and make your views heard

The Beehive will be a modern community centre and arts venue designed to meet the needs of our growing and diverse town. Burgess Hill and its residents deserve a fitting replacement for the Martlets Hall, emphasising the town as a key destination in Mid Sussex.

Sustainability and accessibility are at the heart of the project which will follow a phased build to provide a range of meeting rooms, a dance studio, break-out areas, museum space and a modern equipped theatre.

With a first phase build cost of around £5.27 million, the core of the project will be funded by a loan of up to £4.8 million from the Public Works Loan Board with annual loan repayments in the region of £150,000 per annum for the life of the loan (50 years).  The balance will be provided from funds the Town Council has already set aside and other identified third party monies. The Town Council will not need to increase its element of the council tax to repay the loan and existing services, provided by the Town Council, will be unaffected.
 
The project is dependent on securing the previously mentioned loan of up to £4.8 million and we need your approval to apply for this core funding.
