Crawley Borough Council has taken possession of the new Town Hall building.

The nine-storey building, at the eastern end of The Boulevard in Crawley town centre, will provide civic and office space for the council on the lower 3.5 floors. Above are 5.5 floors of Grade A commercial office space that will generate income to help maintain council services into the future.

Now that practical completion has been achieved, final snagging is being carried out and the council’s mobilisation plans have begun. This includes some decorating, IT infrastructure and furniture installation.

When this is complete, staff and councillors will move across from the current Town Hall in phases before the building opens to the public.

The Town Hall redevelopment is a vital part of securing our ability to afford high-quality services, while helping regenerate the town centre and reducing the town’s carbon emissions. There is still work to do before we move in but this is a major milestone in the project. Thanks to everyone who has played their part in getting us to this important stage.

Councillor Michael Jones
