Crawley Delivery stage

This project was funded on 13 Jul 2018!

Phase 1 is an essential consultation stage. We need to find out whether our idea has the support and 'buy-in' of the wider community. We want to offer a process of discovery and involvement in planning and implementing a public realm arts, local historical and engineering heritage, landscape and townscape conservation and enhancement scheme. A consultation stage will involve neighbourhood leafletting, notice board posters, drop-in presentation events, slide shows and preparation of on-line media material and questionnaires. Initially, therefore, we are seeking funding for hard copy printing of consultation documents and leaflets, and for pop-up display stands and roller banners.

What we'll deliver:

  • Give illustrated presentations relating to Caroline Haslett and local history
  • Seek practical involvement of schools, college and local organisations
  • All leading, it is hoped, to defining the content of a scheme for getting on the ground.

Why it's a great idea:

A combination of circumstances calls for a fresh look at raising the profile of one of the most illustrious of Sussex women – and especially from the place that developed as Crawley in the 20th century: 1. There is a WSCC Highways site, unused except for an electricity pylon, at a key public realm and ‘gateway’ location in Three Bridges and Crawley. 2. The birthplace and childhood home of Caroline Haslett is very nearby. 3. The closure of the Three Bridges branches of Lloyds and Barclays banks foreshadow a degree of change to the locality, in which we want to play a part in setting the scene. 4. The site relates visually and functionally to currently proposed Three Bridges Station access alterations. 5. Urban design enhancements and place-making opportunities are complementary to a current request to extend Conservation Area status to the pre new town ‘village’ of Three Bridges. 6. The view of tower itself is inescapable. Let's make it work for us. A test illumination was great!

Steps to get it done:

  • Prepare consultation leaflet and questionnaire
  • Prepare a presentation for delivery to audiences
