Bid to revamp empty shops in Crawley town centre


Empty shop units in Crawley town centre will get new shop fronts, it has been proposed.

A bid was made to remove the canopy above the five units in the corner of Queens Square (numbers 20 to 24) and Queensway (2 to 4). New entrance doors, alluminium glazed shop front and fascias were also planned.



Crawley Borough Council registered the planning application by Galgorm Properties on Monday (November 9).

Officers were to determine the application on January 4 2016.

A planning document said the building was last used in July. It has retail space in the ground floor and office accommodation on the upper floors.
