With a mere 35-minute commute into central London and with Gatwick on the doorstep, Crawley is ideally located for buyers looking to escape city life but still retain the key fundamentals of urban living.

Home to a huge range of businesses and a vibrant town centre, Crawley offers all the benefits residents want in a prime commuter town. Located at the heart of the Gatwick Diamond, it is a town on the rise having achieved investment of upward of £30 million in recent years.

This funding has enabled the Crawley Borough Council and partners to undergo a programme of regeneration. This has breathed new life into the town centre and surrounding area, delivered infrastructure improvements, new homes, business investment, employment growth and put Crawley on the map as an investment hotspot.

In line with this major investment, the town has seen an increase in residents with a growing population of nearly 112,000. In answer to this, the Council is overseeing the construction of over 1,800 new homes to meet demand.

Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, said: “People are moving to Crawley because it’s a vibrant, thriving place with lots to offer in the way of quality jobs, leisure, housing, sustainable transport and digital connectivity. The number of jobs and businesses in the town has continued to grow as we’ve focused our efforts on delivering our ambitious town centre regeneration programme.”
