The projects funded will also benefit the residents of Crawley by helping to improve the environment and to help meet the demands that development places on the need for community services and facilities within the town.

Councillor Atif Nawaz, cabinet member for planning and economic development, said: “We are very pleased to be able to continue the Neighbourhood Improvement Fund. This has been made possible thanks to Community Infrastructure Levy finances the council has collected from developers.

“We’re keen to fund a range of community projects that help improve the local environment in our neighbourhoods and I encourage local groups with good ideas and local support to apply.”
