ON THE WEST OF IFIELD ISSUE
[Excerpts from Crawley Observer article on June 19 2024 – ‘Candidates for Crawley campaign for your vote’ – Local Democracy Reporter: Karen Dunn]

ZACK ALI [CON]
‘Zack Ali…has a six-point plan of action…and opposing the West of Ifield plans. While pro-housing, he, like so many others, does not think West of Ifield is the right place for thousands of new homes. While other neighbouring authorities already building up to Crawley’s boundaries, he spoke of his concerns about the pressure placed on the town’s services’.

PETER LAMB [LAB]
‘While he recognises the need for housing and council housing, Mr Lamb’s views on the West of Ifield proposals are clear. He said: “What is being proposed offers no benefit whatsoever to the town”. Like so many others, his concerns centre on the pressure Crawley’s infrastructure will face from a development built on the boundary with the Horsham district, with the only positive being 100 units of social housing’.
