The Hazelwick Road Conservation Area is located in Three Bridges near Three Bridges Railway Station.
The area was developed in the Victorian period, with detached and semi-detached houses and terraces of red brick. It illustrates the Victorian expansion of Three Bridges linked with the building of the railway and a major junction. The presence of detached and semi-detached houses, the use of different coloured bricks and bay windows suggest that the street was not conceived purely as working class railway housing, although terraced railway cottages are also present. This variety of building type and detailing such as historic shopfronts is of architectural value, with the continuous frontages and sense of enclosure of townscape value.
The Conservation Area was designated on 3 April 2013 to protect its special architectural and historical interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance, and to ensure that any development proposals are of a scale, form, and design that respects its existing character and setting. A Conservation Area Statement is still to be produced, though once prepared and adopted it will provide a character appraisal for the area and will set out guidance that should be followed when any development takes place.
Crawley Borough Council and Hazelwick Road Conservation Area Committee have worked together to prepare a draft Conservation Area statement, which was published for a period of public consultation from 22 February 2019 to 22 March 2019. We are currently reviewing the received feedback, and where appropriate making amendments to the document. It is anticipated that the Hazelwick Road Conservation Area Statement will be adopted by the council in June 2019. The draft statement is accompanied by the consultation statement and the SA/SEA screen report.
Crawley Borough Council works with local residents and businesses to support the Hazelwick Road Conservation Area Advisory Committee. The committee played an active role in helping to create a Conservation Area Statement for Hazelwick Road by using their local knowledge of the area, and continue to support it by providing comments on planning applications within the Conservation Area and supporting the council in identifying and delivering enhancements to the area.
