Manor Royal Business District is the single biggest business park of Crawley, West Sussex and the Gatwick Diamond. Just two miles from London Gatwick Airport, mainline rail stations and major motorway networks, Manor Royal has become the centre for a diverse range of business activities, 500 firms, and 30,000 people.
Not only does Manor Royal make excellent commercial sense, its position on the county borders of rural West Sussex and Surrey provide excellent easy, access to attractive countryside, places of interest and culture.
Crawley itself boasts a prime retail and varied leisure offer and fantastic fast connections to the cities of Brighton and London. The enviable transport links also provide employers with access to a wide catchment for suppliers, customers, staff and housing options.
Manor Royal continues to thrive and attract interest supported by an active business community to ensure the area remains responsive to the demands of modern occupiers and workers. There is a lot more information on Manor Royal’s dedicated website covering everything from Business Life to Local Life.

Earlier this year, the council asked for your views on the draft Manor Royal Design Guide and Public Realm Strategy Supplementary Planning Document. This is a new document which is intended to help ensure that development improves the overall environment at Manor Royal to ensure that it continues to function as an attractive location for businesses, their staff, and clients.
Although the intention to improve the Manor Royal environment was broadly supported at consultation, concern was expressed relating to some of the more detailed approaches put forward by the document. In response to the feedback we received, the council has now amended the original consultation document to produce two separate but complementary documents to help shape the future appearance of Manor Royal.
The council is now inviting feedback on both documents, and is undertaking an additional period of consultation which will commence on Tuesday 30 April and closes on Monday 13 May 2013. All feedback received during the additional consultation period will then be taken into account ahead of presenting both documents at the council’s Cabinet on 5 June, where they will be considered for adoption.
