“Our proposed plans include pre-lets with some of Europe’s best in class retail and leisure operators, and in collaboration with Mid-Sussex District Council, will create a dynamic mixed-use town centre in West Sussex that is fit for purpose for the 21st century.
“This major development will be delivered in line with NewRiver’s risk-controlled development strategy and is expected to generate attractive returns for our investors and a revitalised town centre for Burgess Hill.”
