Business park plan for Crawley's former Glaxo site

A business park, along with a hotel and restaurants, is being planned for a former GlaxoSmithKline site in Sussex.

The multi-national drugs company closed its Crawley factory last summer with the loss of hundreds of jobs.

The site at Manor Royal was acquired by LaSalle Investment Management, which along with Exton Estates aims to attract new businesses to the area.

It will be known as Principal Park and a planning application is due to be submitted in the next few months.

Buldings on the 30-acre site are currently being demolished.
