Demolition work has begun on shop units in Crawley more than two years after plans were approved there.

The regeneration plans, approved in January 2016, stated they would demolish buildings on the eastern side of The Broadway, to be replaced with six storeys of 78 flats above shops on the ground floor.

At the time of approval concerns were raised about the lack of provision for parking, however a similar scheme, approved in 2013 but never implemented, also had no parking provision.
