HOLLYWOOD Bowl could be opening in Sussex.

NewRiver is in ‘advanced discussions’ with Hollywood Bowl about a 16-lane bowling alley as part of the Burgess Hill town centre redevelopment.

It’s part of an ‘exciting regeneration project’ for town centre development by 2020.

A spokesman for NewRiver said: “NewRiver can confirm that advanced discussions are taking place with Hollywood Bowl, the UK’s best ten pin bowling alley experience, to bring an exciting 16 lane bowling alley to Burgess Hill.

“Forming part of the new town centre development, we are continuing to work with the operator on a number of elements of the new offer.

“This will allow NewRiver to deliver the vision that incorporates a blend of leisure attractions, community uses and facilities, alongside the town centre retail and restaurants.”

The plans include a ten-screen multiplex Cineworld cinema, 142 new homes, Travelodge hotel, 174 extra car parking spaces, improved public realm and a new library.
