Award of Contract Partial Demolition Crawley County Buildings

In August 2017 the Leader approved the Crawley Growth Programme LDR04 17.18 and following approval of the business case by the West Sussex Local Enterprise Partnership, delegated authority to the Executive Director Economy, Infrastructure and Environment to progress the projects. Crawley County Buildings partial demolition is a key project within the growth programme.

A full demolition was approved in July 2019. A change request was submitted March 2020 to reduce the full demolition to a partial demolition in order to mitigate costs associated with the abortive relocation of the Coroners Service into Bartons Primary School. A partial demolition of the County Buildings will prepare the site for prospective developers.


The Executive Director Place Services will be asked to approve the award of contract to the preferred provider to deliver the demolition works.
