A new station quarter for Haywards Heath

Commended at the Mid Sussex Design Awards the £35 million regeneration has delivered a thriving new gateway to the town.


Commended at the Mid Sussex Design Awards, the £35 million regeneration of Haywards Heath Railway Station transformed the station quarter for the benefit of the traveling public and the people of Haywards Heath. At the heart of the scheme was a new Waitrose food store which opened in March 2017.

Haywards Heath Retail

At 45,000 sq ft, it was the largest Waitrose food store in Sussex and the largest opened in the UK in 2017. The project also provided:

  • An improved integrated transport hub at the station
  • A radically enhanced public realm around the station
  • Improved pick up and drop off facilities
  • More station car parking
  • Additional retail and restaurant units
