Community funding of more than £7,900 will be decided on by members of the East Crawley County Local Committee this evening (Thursday March 6).

Members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting in the Longley Room at Crawley Library at 7pm.

Among applications to the East Crawley CLC is a request for funding towards a new wood pellet boiler to replace the current system at the Crawley Youth and Community Centre.

Councillors will also be asked to consider making a donation from the fund to local food banks to help those people struggling with the increasing cost of food.

Any remaining part of this year’s CIF will be transferred to Operation Watershed at the end of this current financial year to alleviate local flooding problems across West Sussex.

Chairman Richard Burrett said: “Community Initiative Funding is a great way of helping local communities to help themselves and these applications are the sorts of applications that we, as councillors, would like to see more of.”

During the meeting, councillors will also be asked to agree traffic regulation priorities and to agree that the principle of implementing a comprehensive speed reduction scheme for Turners Hill Road, Worth, should be included in the Infrastructure Plan.
