Only a week to go before Queensway regeneration begins

Next Monday 14th Jan will see the start of the £2.2m scheme to transform the town centre.



It’s been a long time coming but after the transformation of Queens Sq work will begin on regenerating the area along Queensway, The Pavement and Kingsgate.

The good news is that all businesses will remain open once the work in the area begins.

Blakedown Landscapes; who developed Queens Square, will begin work on-site next Monday (14 January), transforming the area into an attractive, vibrant and enjoyable space for residents and visitors.

Work is expected to be completed in Autumn 2019. The £2.2m scheme is 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 (LEP).

The council will work closely with Blakedown Landscapes and local businesses to ensure there is minimal disruption to visitors while the work takes place. Regular updates will be provided on the Regenerating Crawley website, alongside FAQ’s.

Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, Councillor Peter Smith, said:

“This is an exciting project and I look forward to seeing the finished result.

“While the work is carried out, we aim to ensure that visitors to the town centre can continue their day-to-day activities with minimal disruption. However there will be occasions when access may be restricted and alternative pathways put in place. We will provide regular project updates on our Regenerating Crawley website.”
