Flyposting

Under the 1980’s Highway Act flyposting is illegal, and makes our town look tatty, not to mention dangerous as drivers take their eyes off the road when trying to read the poster.

The Maintenance Team keep a sharp eye out for flyposting and remove it straight away.

Shopping Trolleys

Shopping trolleys, if not returned to the store, can be an eyesore if left around the town and can also be used for anti-social behaviour.

Street Lights

The majority of street lights in our town are the responsibility of West Sussex County Council, with the Town Council also having responsibility for some.

If you need to report that a street light is not working or is damaged it would be helpful if you could obtain a column number and give us the precise location of the light.

 

Street Nameplates

Burgess Hill Town Council receives a sum of money from Mid Sussex District Council to undertake repairs or replace the street nameplates in Burgess Hill. Wherever possible the Maintenance Team will try and repair a sign but if a new one is needed then we take the opportunity to standardise the design throughout our town. Damaged street nameplates can be reported to the Help Point.
