Located at the heart of the Gatwick Diamond, Crawley is a vibrant town and the major economic driver for the region. We are the proud home to a huge range of businesses from large multinationals to start-ups, many of which are located in Manor Royal, the largest business district in the south east. We also benefit from fantastic transport links including Gatwick, the second largest UK airport, as well as being a fantastic place to live, work and play. 

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.

Following good progress since the programme was initially launched in spring 2016, we have now updated it to include projects which are completed, underway or in the pipeline, along with details on the multi-million pound Crawley Growth Programme announced in autumn 2017.

With the ambition of becoming a dynamic business growth hub with a bold and vibrant community heart for Crawley and the Gatwick Diamond, the plans aim to drive a diverse retail and leisure offer, excellent public realm, high-quality town centre living and a thriving evening economy.
