Letter: Backwards step to turn back on Burgess Hill's Martlets Hall replacement

3rd October 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in Mid Sussex Times.

The decision of the Mid Sussex District Council to turn its back on a like-for-like (or better) replacement of The Martlets Hall is a huge step backwards in terms of taking Burgess Hill forward.

[A letter from the Theatres Trust dated September 8, 2015] goes on to remind MSDC that the role of the Martlets Hall was recognised in the elaboration of the Burgess Hill Neighbourhood Plan. While the Plan accepted that the Martlets Hall might well face demolition, it supported the creation of a new arts/theatre facility, if necessary on a different site. It advocated that a replacement facility should be built before the Martlets Hall is demolished, thus ensuring continuity.
