Planning application submitted for an extension to the Manor Royal Business District

Aberdeen Standard Investments has submitted a planning application for a natural extension to the Manor Royal Business District on land to the north of Hydehurst Lane.

The proposals would create c.10,000sqm of flexible employment space across three units.

This development is being proposed to meet a local need for new high quality employment space and will provide the following local economic benefits:

1. Create up to 270 jobs

2. Economic contribution of up to £18,900,000 in Gross Added Value Terms to the local economy

3. Generate estimated business rates of £320,000 annually

Fraser Green from Aberdeen Standard Investments said:

"We are delighted to be submitting this application for a natural and logical extension of the highly successful Manor Royal Business District. Our proposals will meet a need in Crawley for more high-quality employment space and this is an ideal location for a huge range of businesses.

"With the country setting out on the road to recovery in 2021, I believe this investment shows Crawley remains a place that is economically dynamic and will continue to grow."

These new industrial units will be accessed from Hydehurst Lane, a high-grade road which currently serves units within Manor Royal and joins the A23, providing links into Crawley, Gatwick Airport and the M23.

The proposals provides 128 car parking spaces with sufficient space for additional parking if required depending on final occupiers.

New flood attenuation features will be provided and the Public Right of Way through the site will be retained.

Subject to planning consent being granted, construction would begin in early 2022, with occupation of the development targeted for 2023.
