Small Charities Week

A message from Kathryn Brooks
West Sussex County Council

Small Charity Week 2019

Dear All

Small Charity Week (17th-22nd June) #SmallCharityWeek is the biggest event in the small charity calendar, providing free initiatives, competitions and support over six days for charities or local community organisations with an annual turnover under £1 million.

As part of this, West Sussex County Council is delighted to offer a limited number of free spaces to Crawley small charities on Tuesday 18th June to promote their work. Between 11am and 2pm, Crawley charities are invited to set up a table information stand (plus space for a pull up banner) on the ground floor of Crawley library. The library has approximately 1,000 visitors each day, and this lunchtime slot should enable organisations to promote themselves to members of the public, but not to fundraise.

You may be interested in looking at these competitions running during the week, and post a photo of yourselves and your supporters at the library?
Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. For more information, or to book please contact Kath Brooks, West Sussex County Council Partnerships & Communities (details below)

Kind Regards

Kath

Crawley Eastern and Station Gateways Public Exhibitions

A message from Kathryn Brooks
West Sussex County Council

Crawley Growth Program
Crawley Eastern and Station Gateways Public Exhibitions

Exciting proposals for the £8.3million Crawley Eastern Gateway and £5.3million Station Gateway projects go on display soon in a series of public exhibitions.

The schemes are part of the £60million Crawley Growth Programme which will ‘unlock’ jobs, business space and home building in the town through major infrastructure improvements.

The two “Gateway” projects aim to improve pedestrian, cycling and bus access and facilities and create better connectivity between the railway and bus stations.

The Eastern Gateway scheme includes improvements to public space and connectivity to support key development opportunities at the Town Hall, County Buildings, Telford Place and Crawley College and includes the public areas in the eastern half of The Boulevard, Exchange Road, the southern end of Northgate Avenue, College Road including the roundabout, and Southgate Avenue, up to and including the junction with Station Way.

The Station Gateway Scheme extends from Friary Way, along Station Way, connecting with Southgate Avenue. Its aims include improving the connectivity between an improved and re-developed rail station, the bus station and improved town centre facilities, incorporating a dedicated left-turn for buses from Friary Way to Station Way and improvement in bus waiting facilities.

The Crawley Growth Programme is being delivered by a major partnership of public and private organisations, including the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, West Sussex County Council, Crawley Borough Council, Metrobus, Gatwick Airport Limited, Manor Royal Business Improvement District (BID) Company. The Gateways projects are also being delivered in partnership with the Arora group and Network Rail.

Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “We have identified that the county needs significant investment in new infrastructure to help stimulate economic growth and Crawley is a key growth location.

“These innovative and exciting proposals aim to have a positive impact on public areas in the town by improving connectivity. I urge people to go along to one of the exhibitions and see for themselves what’s being proposed.”

Crawley Borough Council Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, Councillor Peter Smith, said: “I am delighted that proposals for the regeneration of the Eastern Gateway and Station Gateway have been released.

“The Eastern Gateway is an incredibly busy area of the town and these proposals will not only improve accessibility, but enhance the overall look and feel of the area, attracting more investment into the town. In addition, the Station Gateway improvements will provide a better welcome into the town from Crawley train station. I look forward to hearing what residents have to say about the proposals.”

Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive at Coast to Capital, said: “This series of exhibitions is a fantastic way for the general public to gain insight of the extensive work which has gone into developing an innovative vision for the future success of Crawley. A tremendous effort has been made by partners to improve the infrastructure of the area which will unlock future prosperity.”

Exhibitions are being held at:

  • Wednesday 6 June 2018 Crawley College, 9.30am-1.30pm
  • Tuesday 12 June 2018 Crawley Town Hall, 1pm-5pm
  • Thursday 14 June 2018 County Mall, 2pm-8pm
  • Saturday 16 June 2018 Crawley Library, 11am-2pm
