Sunnymead Conservation Area is located on the edge of the residential neighbourhood of West Green, immediately west of the Town Centre and the High Street Relief Road (Pegler Way).
The area was designated in recognition of the three-storey ‘Y’ shaped concrete flats, rendered and coloured pink and buff. These were designed by Crawley Development Corporation in the 1950’s in a Festival of Britain style and were originally built for the workers who were involved in the construction of the New Town. Conservation Area status was designated in 1997, and the area was extended in 2004 to include the three flatted blocks of similar style that adjoin the conservation area to the north.
The Conservation Area Statement provides a character appraisal for the area and guidance that should be followed when any development takes place. You can view the Conservation Area Statement by clicking on the link below.
We have Planning Officers designated to look after every Conservation Area. Justin Kilger is the Planning Officer responsible for the High Street Conservation Area and also attends the meetings of the Conservation Area Advisory Committee offering advice, guidance, and support. If you have any queries he would be more than happy to help. He can be contacted by email or phone on 01293 438 021.
The 4C’s (Central Crawley CAAC) provides comments on planning applications that are submitted within Dyers Almshouses Conservation Area, High Street Conservation Area, St Peters Conservation Area, and the Sunnymead Flats Conservation Area. The group meets every two months at Crawley Town Hall If you would like to join, or get in touch with the CAAC then please contact Forward Planning via email .
