The programme will concentrate on delivering some of the priority projects and schemes identified by the Study and secure millions of pounds of new investment.
When it will be done
The programme has a delivery timeframe of 2018-2021.
How it will get done
The Manor Royal BID will work closely with West Sussex County Council and Crawley Borough Council to ensure the programme meets the need of local businesses and people, taking the lead on projects where appropriate.
