Facelift Phase Two for Crawley
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 By Neil Cooper MRICS
Phase Two of Crawleys Town Centre Regeneration programme is set to commence very soon following the appointment of the main construction contractor. The works, to Queensway and The Pavement, will cost £2.2 million and form part of the Crawley Growth Programme, funded by Crawley Borough Council, West Sussex County Council and the Local Growth Fund, through the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership.
The project will be an extension to the work already undertaken in transforming Queens Square which re-opened last year. On completion, the works, in addition to significantly altering the street scene, will create a new space for an improved future outdoor market. It is hoped that these improvements, together with those already completed and proposed, will encourage neighbouring landowners and businesses to invest more in the area, acting as a catalyst for wider regeneration.
Neil Cooper of our Crawley Office, currently the Acting Chairman of the Crawley Town Centre Partnership, commented: ‘following the transformation of Queen Square, Phase Two dovetails nicely as a natural extension to the same, forming part of the ongoing regeneration of the town centre area. Proposed future schemes, which include the Eastern Gateway and the redevelopment of the Railway Station site (The Station Gateway), will help regenerate and further enhance the attractiveness of the Crawley town centre area, creating a modern environment enabling the town to fully compete as a 21st century retail location’.
