The attractive, modern development has been built next to Crawley’s Town Hall, where Crawley Borough Council still houses its main office. A2Dominion’s development team has worked tirelessly during various lockdowns and periods of working restrictions to bring the new affordable homes to Crawley in a timely fashion, alongside site owner Haywards Heath Investment, building contractor Henry Construction and Crawley Borough Council
Gary Blatcher, Director of Transformation and Customer Experience at A2Dominion, said: “Getting this fantastic development to the stage where people can move in, through some very challenging times, is a great achievement. I’m delighted that we can now welcome the first residents to these high-quality, affordable new homes.”
The name of the building honours Geraint Thomas, who was Crawley Borough Council’s cabinet member for Environmental Services and Sustainability when he sadly passed away in November 2019. He was passionate about responsible planning and development in the town, and this scheme is seen as a fitting way to remember the exceptional work he did for the area.
Cllr Ian Irvine said: “We are delighted to have worked with A2Dominion to bring this affordable housing development to Crawley in a fantastic central location with excellent transport links. It is a worthy commemoration of Geraint Thomas and the passion that he showed through his work at Crawley Borough Council and in the town.
“The development is a great opportunity for first time buyers to get on the housing market with the shared ownership scheme. Geraint Thomas House is one of the sites that will also benefit from affordable heat and hot water for residents once the District Heat Network is completed – bringing cheaper, greener energy to the town centre.”
