travelodge hotel burgess hill Proposed Travelodge To House Migrants & The Homeless?

2nd March 2016
by Peter Chapman

When it was announced that a Travelodge would be coming to Burgess Hill as part of the proposed redevelopment of the Martlets Shopping Centre, many people asked 'Who's going to stay there?' 'What do we need another hotel for?'

We may just have the answer for you.

A local resident got in touch today, pointing out that the proposed Travelodge in the town centre will have no conference facilities or restaurant. This person has carried out some research online and discovered that councils use Travelodge Hotels across the country to house migrants and the homeless.

The reports online aren't very positive:

Is This A Problem?
How would you feel if Mid Sussex District Council/Home Office were to house Migrants and the Homeless in the town centre? Would it actually be a problem?

Should the use of the Travelodge be clarified before the planning committee meeting on Thursday March 10th?
