Despite being known chiefly as a new town, Crawley has in fact existed as a settlement for centuries and this varied history is reflected in the borough’s existing built and natural environment.
The borough has a number of designations in place to protect and enhance the borough’s historic assets. Heritage assets make a positive contribution to the local character and helps define what makes Crawley distinctive.
With the borough continuing to development over the coming years, it is essential to protect and, where possible, enhance through the planning process those historic assets that contribute so much to the town’s sense of place.
