Local Business Support

Heath Square

Mid Sussex District Council is providing practical help for business in the form of:

  • The council has waived pre-planning advice charges for small businesses
  • Business advice clinics have been arranged in conjunction with Business Link, providing one to one meetings with an experienced business advisor
  • Rate relief may be available for small businesses through the government's national business rate discount scheme
  • Food hygiene sessions are available if you have, or are thinking of starting, a catering business
  • Mid Sussex is also promoting a 'Right up your street' campaign to encourage people to shop locally. The idea is to encourage residents to support local traders. The new Business Directory will help residents to find all of their local businesses, so now is the time to ensure you are registered.

    One of the first key initiatives in the campaign is that the Southern Co-operative store in Haywards Heath is offering discounted parking to Mid Sussex shoppers. The store will refund the cost of the first hour's parking, in short stay car parks, to any customer spending over 10 in the store. A further incentive is that the store is also offering its customers 2 off any bill over 10 on production of a voucher that is printed on their car parking ticket. Mid Sussex is looking for other stores in the district to take part in similar offers.
