Northgate area guide
Started in 1951 as part of the new town development and similar to West Green which borders it, Northgate has a population of around 4,400.
There are just under 2,000 households in Northgate making it one of the smallest neighborhoods in Crawley.
The properties consist of a varying mixture from studio apartments to detached properties. There is quite a large concentration of ex-local authority terraced housing. The neighbourhood has a similar make up to West Green and is again quite multi-cultural.
Northgate is located within walking distance of both the Town Centre and the Manor Royal industrial estate.
Despite its proximity to the centre, it still boasts a number of local facilities including a shopping parade, community centre and Northgate Primary School (Ofsted). It also partly falls within the Hazelwick Secondary School (Ofsted) catchment area.
