New Town Hall timeline changes

The timescales for the regeneration of the eastern end of The Boulevard – including a new Town Hall – have changed.

Demolition of the eastern part of the Town Hall has been moved back to October 2019. This change to the work programme has been made to reduce financial risk and to take account of delays due to investigations into potential listing.

This provides the council with the opportunity to bring the Council Chamber and Civic Hall back into use until June/July 2019, when decommissioning will commence.

County Mall cycle path takes shape

Work on upgrading a pathway at the south side of Memorial Gardens, to improve cycle links around the town centre, has started.

The pathway connects County Mall and Memorial Gardens to the toucan crossing on College Road and is currently only wide enough to accommodate pedestrians. The proposed scheme will mean that the pathway will be widened to allow both pedestrians and cyclists continuous, safe access to and from the town centre.

Town Centre Signage: thank you for your feedback

Crawley residents were invited to share their feedback on proposals for the new town centre signage and specifically the icons and images that will appear on the signs. The designs follow the town's new place branding which was created after a period of consultation with key stakeholders, the Town Centre Partnership, together with Crawley Borough Council, in February 2017.

The branding celebrates Crawley’s new town history while adding a colourful and modern twist with the use of iconography reflecting landmarks, places of interest, shopping and eating etc.

The bandstand is coming back!

The town’s Victorian bandstand is now a step closer to being restored and relocated to the Memorial Gardens.

Crawley Borough Council has been working with specialist Leander Architecture to refurbish and restore the bandstand after it was moved from Queens Square to make way for the regeneration works in 2016. The bandstand was placed in storage and is now being returned to its former beauty, at Leander’s workshop in Derbyshire, before being installed in the north-west corner of the Memorial Gardens.
