Crawley Live Column, Summer 2019

With Crawley’s first all-out elections in fifteen years over, and all the bureaucracy involved in starting a new council year complete, it’s a relief to again be able to focus solely on the challenges facing our town.

The Government has taken the last of Crawley’s grant and I’m determined to avoid cuts, which means trying to make up the difference through money-generating schemes such as the redevelopment of the Town Hall site. Housing continues to be a huge challenge and while we are building hundreds of new affordable homes every year, the challenge we’re now working on is finding new land for homes without losing valuable green space. Gatwick has also changed ownership and there are questions as to what changes at the airport might mean for Crawley.

While the path of our country remains uncertain, whatever happens you will continue to have a council which is on your side.
