We are seeking views on Crawley 2035, the first stage (known as Regulation 18) in producing a new Local Plan that will guide development in the borough from 2020 to 2035.
The Local Plan is an important document, setting out planning policies to guide the amount and location of housing and employment development, support the growth of the Town Centre as a new neighbourhood, ensure that the right infrastructure is in place to meet the needs of Crawley’s growing population, and protect the important historic assets and open spaces that are valued by residents and visitors.
We are also inviting views on two accompanying documents, the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report, and the draft Habitats Regulations Assessment.
Paper copies of the documents can also be viewed at the following places and times;
Comments on the Crawley 2035 documents are invited during the consultation period starting on 15 July 2019 and ending at 5.30pm on 16 September 2019. Please comment using our online survey . Your comments can also be emailed to Forward Plans , or sent to Strategic Planning, Town Hall, The Boulevard, Crawley, RH10 1UZ.
