Opportunity Mid Sussex,  The Council’s inward investment platform.

Mid Sussex’s place in the southeast region makes it one of the most exciting and rewarding investment locations in the United Kingdom today.

Mid Sussex District Council (MSDC) is an ambitious, open and accessible authority committed to sustainable growth, ensuring new homes, employment space and infrastructure are delivered in a way which meets our economic, social and environmental goals.


Nestled in the rolling chalk hills of some of England’s most outstanding natural landscapes, Mid Sussex is perfectly positioned on the doorstep of London’s international gateway, Gatwick Airport, halfway between the UK capital and the seaside createch hub of Brighton. Its resilient, strong and growing economy has made it the home of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs. And with its rich heritage, outstanding landscape and a strong cultural and leisure offer, Mid Sussex is a truly great place to live, work and invest.

Current and Future Development Plans

The Council’s Strategic Growth Programme for Burgess Hill is the most ambitious programme of change anywhere in the sub-region. Our ambition is to transform the local economy, creating thousands of new high value jobs in technology-led industries, making Burgess Hill one of the most attractive places in the region to live and to do business.

The £1bn+ Growth Programme is delivering 5,000 new homes, 70 hectares of allocated employment land, including a 49-hectare Science and Technology Park and £60m investment in major infrastructure.

Mid Sussex District Council is committed to balancing the delivery of sustainable communities and long-term growth, building on the successful recent delivery of a £35m railway station site redevelopment at Haywards Heath, 24m town centre regeneration scheme at East Grinstead and significant investment in digital infrastructure creating an open access fibre ring providing world leading gigabit connectivity and dark fibre for tech clusters.


Mid Sussex District Council is working in partnership with West Sussex County Council, supported by the Government and Homes England to deliver its shared ambitions and priorities for an economic growth programme for the Burgess Hill area.
