Best replacement for the 18-55mm?

I have a 550D with the 18-55mm kit and 55-250mm lenses and I'm considering getting a better Canon lens to replace the 18-55 - any suggestions? Cost isn't an issue - ideally I want one below £600 but willing to go above if major improvements are a guarantee, and within the same zoom range or greater. I've looked at numerous lenses such as the EF-S 17-55mm, but they all seem to have certain disadvantages such as dust intake.
