Junction 6 of the M25 is located 10 miles to the north of East Grinstead, providing access to the national motorway network and the A23 is located 11 miles to the south west, providing access to Brighton and the south coast. East Grinstead has an immediate consumer base of 47,000 people (PROMIS, 2018) with the representation of the most affluent social groups significantly above average levels.
The development encompasses the north side of the scheme and will provide additional high quality retail and leisure space not currently available within East Grinstead town centre. The scheme will include modernised public realm facilities, enhancing connections between Queensway car park and the town centre.
