The annual event takes place from 7-9pm on Thursday 14 March in the Civic Hall in the town centre.
Crawley Question Time takes the form of an independently-chaired general debate and discussion. There are no set topics so attendees can raise any areas or concerns for discussion, such as community safety, Brexit, health, Gatwick Airport, parking, the economy and so much more!
Confirmed panellists include Councillor Peter Lamb, Leader of the Council; Councillor Duncan Crow, Leader of the Opposition; Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development; Rosie Ross, Chief Inspector of Crawley Police; and Laiba Baig, Crawley Young Persons Council. More panellists will be added to the panel.
The event is open to everyone; the public, business leaders and partner organisations. The views and comments expressed will help the council and others to plan work on improving services and the town in general.
Councillor Peter Lamb said:
“As a council, Crawley believes that it is important we give residents the chance to hold decision-makers to account. Crawley Question Time is a great chance to ask questions about our town and to raise the issues which matter to you in front of local decision-makers, such as myself.
“These evenings are always full of lively debate, so please sign up now and come along to let us know what you’re thinking!”

Furniture Village opens its doors in Crawley’s County Oak Retail Park
Crawley welcomes Furniture Village who will open a brand-new store in County Oak retail park this Boxing Day.
The new location offers a Carpetright concession, providing a one-stop-shop for customers looking to update their homes.
Visitors to the new Furniture Village store will be invited to create their ‘home in one’, by exploring collections for every room of the house, from sofas to beds to dining.
Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, comments:
“With much of the UK under lockdown, I’m delighted we’ve been able to open our new store in Crawley. County Oak is a fantastic shopping destination and the ideal choice for Furniture Village.
“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but I am incredibly proud of the Furniture Village team which continues to offer industry-leading quality, choice and service. As well as Family Retailer of the Year, we’ve also been awarded National Bed Retailer of the Year so I’m particularly looking forward to welcoming customers to our new bed department.”
The store will see a team of 11 expert sales consultants offering valuable insights and advice to customers, all made possible thanks to enhanced Covid-19 safety measures.
These include temperature checks, PPE for all staff and hand sanitisation stations, along with an appointment booking system which can be accessed via the website.
Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, adds:
“Customer safety is still, and will continue to be, a priority for us. The feedback from all of our existing stores continues to be overwhelmingly positive, with the appointment booking system providing reassurance and exceptional service for customers.”
The store will open at 9am on Saturday 26th December 2020. Opening offers include Sale discounts of up to 50% plus an additional £50 off every £500 spent.
