Property Spotlight: The Prime Commuter Town of Haywards Heath

18th January 2016

Labelled as a prime commuter county, Haywards Heath in West Sussex is the ideal location for commuters looking to escape for a taste of the country lifestyle, but still wanting to be close to bustling London.

Investing in property in Haywards Heath is a popular choice amongst commuters as its travel connections into London are one of its leading assets; Sussex Life magazine has even stated that ‘Haywards Heath is a town defined by the railway. It didn’t exist before it arrived and is now a busy commuter hub with plans to improve.’ If you want a change of scenery away from concrete pavements and skyscrapers, and historic houses and bountiful greenery is what you are coveting then an investment in Haywards Heath is the place for you.

What Does Haywards Heath Have to Offer for Commuters?

Haywards Heath mainline station is served by Southern and Thameslink services that will guarantee commuters a smooth, easy and quick journey into London. With travel times into main stations, including London Victoria and London Bridge at just over 40 minutes, it is no wonder that The Telegraph has branded Haywards Heath as ‘a prime commuter’ town.

Other appealing aspects are the travel links towards Brighton (15 minutes) and Gatwick Airport (11 minutes), as these are also popular locations for employment which are continuing to grow; therefore this further boosts Haywards Heath’s reputation as one of the leading commuter hubs in West Sussex.  In addition, residents of Haywards Heath also have easy access to the M23 and M25 from the A23, which is only a couple of miles west of town.

So, whether you work in the capital or in the south-east region, your route to work will be one less thing to worry about once you become a resident of Haywards Heath.

The Regeneration of Haywards Heath station

Due for completion in the near future, the renovation of Haywards Heath railway station is going to be a great enhancement for the town and make it all that more alluring for London commuters who are house-hunting outside the city. The £35 million regeneration plan is going to provide an upgraded transport hub for passengers with a new multi-storey car park, a footbridge with direct access from the car park to all platforms, and even a Waitrose supermarket. The leader of Mid Sussex District Council, Gary Wall says: ‘The regeneration of the station quarter will be a boost for Haywards Heath and this investment is a real vote of confidence for the town.’

Since 2007, property prices in Haywards Heath have increased by an impressive 15.6% and this figure is expected to increase because of improvements to the town centre and railway. In the eyes of a commuter, there is no better time to invest in a property in this charming countryside town.
