Burgess Hill Town Council has undertaken a Public Consultation for a New Community and Arts Centre on Cyprus Road. The Centre would have included a new adaptable performance space with seating for up to 250-300. It would have replaced the redundant British Legion building beside the existing Cyprus Hall which was to be retained with a new foyer area. Matt Roberts is representing the Theatre Club on the Steering Group and will report to the Committee on any further developments..
For more details, visit the Town Council website or visit the Help Point where there is a display and model of the proposed venue. You can view the consultation images here or download full presentation here.
To build this new centre the Town Council needed to get a loan from the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. To get this loan, the Town Council needed to show Community Support for the new Centre. Whilst the new centre was supported by those who responded to the consultation, contributing to the cost through an addition to the Town Council part of the Council Tax was not.
