“We also intend to work constructively with Labour to ensure we have the best policies coming forward in the interests of Crawley.”
The Shadow Cabinet will consist of:
Leader - Cllr Duncan Crow
Deputy Leader and Housing - Cllr Richard Burrett

Cllr Crow added “The Conservative Shadow Cabinet is a very experienced team that will provide a strong and credible alternative to Labour’s Cabinet at the town hall.
“This is important in order for us to have a healthy and vibrant local democracy in Crawley.”
