Fresh plans for six-storey block of Crawley flats

Plans to build a six-storey block of 20 flats in Pegler Way have been submitted to Crawley Borough Council.

If the application from Portarlington Ltd is approved, it would mean the demolition of numbers 3-7, including Bar 7.

The area has seen block after block of flats built over the past few years but councillors and officers were unhappy with Portarlington’s last suggestion for the site.

The block of 24 flats was refused in 2019, being described as ‘squeezed in’ and an ‘unacceptable and cramped form of development’.

This latest application includes space for a small shop and gym on the ground floor and parking for 12 cars, 26 bikes and three motorcycles.

One of the spaces will be for disabled parking and four will have electric charging points.

The flats themselves will be made up of ten one-bedroom, six two-bedroom and four studio.
