A new station quarter

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 has now transformed the station quarter for the benefit of the travelling public and the people living in the town. At the heart of the scheme is a new Waitrose food store which opened in March 2017 and a range of convenient facilities. This project was completed in 2017.

Haywards Heath Retail

At 45,000 sq ft, this development was the largest Waitrose food store in all of Sussex, and the largest opened in the United Kingdom in 2017. This project also provided the local community and visitors with:

  • An improved integrated transport hub within 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
