Worth Conservation Area is situated just within the south eastern boundary of Crawley. Its borders run along the northern boundaries of Fieldgate and Beaufort Cottage, down the motorway, across to Balcombe Road, just south of the moat and northwards up Balcombe Road, Street Hill.
Worth Conservation Area was designated by the council in March 1987 when it was recognised that it was important to preserve and enhance the character of the setting of St. Nicholas’ Church, which has been described as one of the most perfect specimen of a Saxon building in England.
The Conservation Area Statement was revised in 2003 and 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.
Conservation Area Advisory Committee (CAAC)
Most conservation areas have advisory bodies with members living and working locally who are interested in helping to ensure that the special setting and character of the area is preserved or enhanced. Worth Conservation Area Advisory Committee (WCAAC) is disbanded and not currently active. We intend to work with the Worth community to see if there is interest in reforming WCAAC. If there is we will support re-establishing the committee. If you are interested in re-starting Worth Conservation Area Advisory Committee, please email Forward Plans .
