Facelift for empty shopfront

The Queens Square regeneration programme is due to commence this summer.

Whilst the regeneration is underway, Crawley Borough Council is taking steps to enhance the existing space and also attract businesses to the area.

There are a number of empty commercial properties in the town centre that could benefit from a facelift making them more attractive to let.

The latest retail unit to be given a boost is the former Dorothy Perkins and Burton shopfront in Queens Square.
