Conservation Areas are designated because they are “areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”. We have pledged to protect and enhance these areas in Crawley.
The designation of Conservation Areas is based on a number of factors and does not solely relate to the age of the buildings. Architectural interest and setting of an area are also important.
There are currently eleven Conservation Areas in Crawley:
If you live in a Conservation Area you have fewer permitted development rights and tighter planning controls. If you are planning any form of development, whether you would like to prune a tree, put up a satellite dish, or build a house, please read our Guide to Conservation Areas .
We are inviting feedback on the draft Brighton Road Conservation Area Statement. The four-week Public Consultation period begins on 12 February and closes at 5pm on 12 March 2018.
The draft Conservation Area Statement follows on from the designation of this Conservation Area in 2009 and its enlargement in 2013. The role of the Brighton Road Conservation Area Statement is to identify the key architectural or historical values of the area and the features that contribute to its special character and appearance. It sets out guidance that should be taken into account by development proposals and establishes wider management proposals for the future enhancement of the Conservation Area.
Paper copies of the draft document are available to view at the Town Hall and Crawley Library during normal office/opening hours.
Comments must be submitted in writing and be received by 5pm on 12 March 2018. Responses can be sent either by email or by post to: Forward Planning, Crawley Borough Council, Town Hall, The Boulevard, Crawley, RH10 1UZ
