Crawley Live Column, Autumn 2019

The two biggest decisions for our town for many years have arisen over the last few months: Gatwick Airport have asked to be allowed to bring forward a second runway by using both their main and stand-by runways at the same time and Homes England, a successor body to the Commission for New Towns which built Crawley, is seeking permission to build thousands of new homes on the Western-side of Crawley.

Amazingly, Crawley Borough Council is not the decision-maker for either of these decisions, with the Government set to decide upon Gatwick’s plans and the housing development falling within the planning area of Horsham District Council. Nonetheless, we are working hard to ensure that the implications of these developments for Crawley are clearly understood by the decision-makers and that, in the event either proposal is approved, every possible measure is put in place to limit their impact upon the town.
