Burgess Hill - Leylands Road, Station Road & Adjoining Roads: Traffic Regulation Order Amendments HT02 (22/23)

The proposed Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) Amendments are prepared as part of the Western Gateway and Station Improvements scheme being delivered as part of the Burgess Hill Place and Connectivity Programme (PCP), which comprises a major element of the wider Burgess Hill Growth Programme.  The Western Gateway and Stations Detailed Design were completed in November 2021 with the subsequent tender of a delivery contractor approved in January 2022.


The scheme requires amends to existing TROs on Station Road, Queens Crescent (Burgess Hill Town Centre) and Leylands Road, Gladstone Road (Wivelsfield Station) to ensure delivery of the planned pedestrian and cycle improvements.


The scheme proposals have been the subject of public engagement and ongoing dialogue with key stakeholders through the Burgess Hill Growth Board and the Burgess Hill Member Steering Group.  Local Members were notified of the proposed TRO in 2021 and formal consultation was held in February 2022.


During the formal consultation stage, a total of 24 objections (14 regarding Burgess Hill Station elements, 5 regarding Wivelsfield Station elements and 5 regarding both locations together) and one individual letter of support were received.
