In August 2017 the Leader approved the Crawley Growth Programme LDR04 17.18 and following approval of the business case by the West Sussex Local Enterprise Partnership, delegated authority to the Executive Director Economy, Infrastructure and Environment to progress the projects (now Executive Director of Place Services). In December 2017 OKD03(17-18) the Executive Director Economy, Infrastructure and Environment (now Executive Director of Place Services) agreed Crawley Growth Programme project funding allocations and delivery governance.


Much progress has been made since December 2017 and a number of projects have been developed, designed and delivered under the guidance of the Crawley Growth Board.


The Executive Director of Place Services will approve amendments to project funding allocations, within the overall Programme funding allocation, and project governance to reflect current estimates and delivery routes supported by the Crawley Growth Board.

iii)          a commitment to allocate the WSCC funding identified for the CGP over a period through to March 31st 2025 broadly in accordance with the indicative spend profile set out in paragraph 4.6.
