Crawley Down

It's YOUR VILLAGE so be sure that you have your say!

The Crawley Down Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee has simple aims: to support the community and protect its heritage.

During the next twelve to eighteen months some of the most important decisions to affect our village will be made.

Why are we preparing a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Localism Act 2011 has enabled local people to make their views known about the future of their areas and to have these opinions taken into account when future planning decisions are taken by Parish and Borough Councils. The intent is to make the process more ‘bottom-up’ rather than ‘top-down’ and to give local people’s views more weight.

These decisions will affect the shape and size of Crawley Down and, if this is a village that you feel part of and care about, they will affect you.
