Nearly 300 additional spaces are set to be provided at a soon-to-be started multi-storey car park at Haywards Heath station.
Solum Regeneration, the company behind the Haywards Heath station redevelopment, has revealed a new Network Rail plan for more parking.
Solum’s senior development manager John Robinson told the Mid Sussex Times that Network Rail had found funding to take the station’s proposed multi-storey car park from 820 to 1,100 spaces.
The money has been ring-fenced by Network Rail for the long-awaited and long-planned Haywards Heath station redevelopment.
Mr Robinson said additional design work had pushed the start date back from this summer to early next year. Some ‘enabling’ work such as fencing may begin before Christmas.
At the meeting the Haywards Heath Town Team, a shoppers’ loyalty card for the town was one of many ideas and plans that was revealed to help move the town into the 21st century.
Shopkeepers and business owners are joining forces under the HHTT umbrella to formulating numerous schemes to breathe life back into the town.
Their aim is to keep customers in the locality rather than see them continue to drift to Crawley, Brighton, London and elsewhere.
