Town Centre Regeneration

Crawley Borough Council and partners are embarking on a programme to sustainably regenerate the town centre – breathing new life into key locations in order to release the area’s full potential as a prime retail, leisure, business and residential location.

The Town Centre Regeneration Programme outlines ambitious plans to regenerate the area which was rated the 23rd hottest retail opportunity in 2016 and third best premium retail opportunity in the UK by researchers, CACI.

£3.2m of improvement work to Queens Square, the heart of the town centre, is now complete and plans to extend the improvements into the adjoining Queensway and The Pavement have been approved, with work due to start in early 2019. 

A successful £14.6m bid to the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, match funded by Crawley Borough Council and West Sussex County Council with significant private sector contributions including Metrobus and The Arora Group, will see major regeneration to public spaces and infrastructure across the town centre. The work also serves to unlock multi-million-pound investment across the town centre.

The heart of this programme is our work with stakeholders, ensuring everyone sees the benefit of a regenerated Crawley town centre.
