Crawley Station Gateway
- Arora Group
There are major plans to regenerate Crawley Station and Overline House in the town centre, revitalising one of Crawley’s major gateways and public realm area. Developers Arora Group first received outline planning permission in 2016 to demolish Overline House and replace it with a new railway station, three blocks of residential properties comprising 308 dwellings with associated parking and a public multi-storey car park with capacity for 120 vehicles.
Since then, Arora Group, in partnership with Network Rail, Crawley Borough Council, West Sussex County Council and station operators Govia Thameslink Railway have been working together to modify the plans after a development constraint meant the feasibility of building the multi-storey car park needed to be reassessed. As a result the Arora Group proposes to retain and upgrade the existing surface level car park, upgrade the look and feel of Crawley Station and ticket hall. The development also includes the complete refurbishment and extension of Overline House, providing 81 flats with two additional floors and new ground level retail and business units. Three additional new residential blocks containing 223 flats would be built to the west of Overline House. The planning applications for the revised plans were submitted in 2019.
