Hundreds of Jobs at Risk as Regeneration in Crawley Halted.



IN a typical socialist move, Crawley Borough Council, which tonight officially comes under Labour control, has scrapped plans to re-generate a part of the town centre.

The move could cost hundreds of jobs and even drive business elsewhere the Labour Council scrapped plans for a thoroughfare that would link one side of the town centre with the other.

Councillor and Tory Group Leader Duncan Crow exclusively told TBG - "It is disappointing that Labour have thrown in the towel and apparently lack any aspiration for Crawley town centre.

"We believe Crawley is a major sub-regional centre between London and Brighton and should have a town centre befitting of this status. Labour's town centre 'strategy' appears to revolve around having a handful of market stalls in Queens Square."
