Update on Crawley Road’s Derelict Buildings

February 1, 2012 · Posted in Housing & Planning 

As reported in our last newsletter, The Guinness Trust, the owners of the derelict site on the corner of Crawley Road and Littlehaven Lane promised to erect hoardings around the site. This was as a result of the public concerns about its appearance and security expressed at a public meeting in July. You will probably have noticed that the owners of the site erected a hoarding and painted it bright pink. Thanks to the prompt comments from local residents your local councillors requested that it be repainted a more appropriate blue, and there was a swift response from the owners.

Their planning application to redevelop the site and provide about 15 new homes is expected to be submitted shortly.

Unfortunately the Guinness Trust’s original timetable for the redevelopment of the site has slipped a little and the redevelopment is not expected to be completed for another year.
