Send us your questions now for the first ever virtual Crawley Question Time

Crawley Question Time is back for another year – and this time you can ‘attend’ from the comfort of your own home.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event will be virtual. It will be broadcast live on Microsoft Teams on Tuesday 16 March from 7-9pm. It will also be recorded and available to view on YouTube the following day.

Crawley Question Time takes the form of an independently-chaired general debate and discussion. There are no set topics so attendees can raise any areas or concerns for discussion, such as Covid-19, the economy, planning, community safety, Gatwick Airport, parking and so much more!

The event is open to everyone; the public, business leaders and partner organisations. The views and comments expressed will help the council and others to plan work on improving services and the town in general.

Questions can be sent in advance to or on the night in the ‘chat’ function of Microsoft Teams.

This year’s panellists will be:

  • Councillor Peter Lamb, Leader of Crawley Borough Council
  • Councillor Duncan Crow, Leader of the Opposition at Crawley Borough Council and Cabinet member for Fire & Rescue and Communities at West Sussex County Council
  • Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development at Crawley Borough Council
  • Councillor Bob Lanzer, Cabinet member for Economy and Corporate Services at West Sussex County Council
  • Dr Laura Hill, Clinical Chair, NHS West Sussex CCG
  • Inspector Steve Turner, Crawley Police
  • Leon Mukazi, Crawley Youth Mayor.

Councillor Peter Lamb, Leader of the council, said: “While COVID has taken much from Crawley, it has also made meetings more accessible by moving them online. With most of the town’s decision-makers making themselves available for this call, it’s the easiest chance you will get this year to have your questions answered.”

To watch this year’s Crawley Question Time, visit from 6.45pm on Tuesday 16 March.
