Crawley Live Column, Winter 2019

Thanks to the time involved in printing and distributing ‘Crawley Live’, all the content has to be written some time before each edition is released. So, writing now I have no idea what, if anything, has been agreed with regard to the two issues which will have the biggest impact on our town for at least the next few years: Brexit and a possible General Election.

Until then my focus is, as it has been since I became Council Leader, finding a way to keep local services running despite a decade of money being taken from Crawley by central government, and with millions more set to go in the near future. We’ve managed it so far by ensuring we raise the most out of the town’s assets, but with each passing year the options are fewer and if money keeps being taken sooner or later we’ll lose our services too.
