Crawley Council demands West Sussex Council change decision over cuts or relationship is over

In a strongly worded letter to the leader of West Sussex Council, Crawley has made it clear the relationship is over if action is not taken immediately.



Is the relationship with West Sussex County Council now broken?

In a dramatic statement Crawley Council Leader Peter Lamb has tweeted a letter that he has written to West Sussex County Council following the news of potential cuts that would threaten charitable businesses like Open House from operating.

The strongly worded letter pulls no punches and states:

“Until such time as West Sussex Changes its course we will be withdrawing from West Sussex Leader Board activities and while honouring current agreements, we will be taking no further steps towards joint working the county. 

We simple cannot work with people who believe such actions to be moral.”

Last week a petition was started in an attempt to show local support and to save Open House which is just one of many shelters that would be affected.
