Peter Bingle - Further Information
I have lived in Crawley Down for twelve years. My four children were all educated locally. I am committed to keeping Crawley Down special whilst working to resolve those issues which need sorting. The village centre needs to be refreshed and eyesores need to be tackled. They are a blot on the local landscape.Over the last thirty years, I have been a senior political communications adviser and strategic counsellor. I have advised many of the UK's leading businessmen and their companies on their dealings with government. Over the last ten years, I have focused on the property, development and infrastructure sectors. I hope to use this expertise in property and planning for the benefit of the village and wider area.

I have lived in Crawley Down for 33 years and have enjoyed walking the many local public footpaths with my dogs. I have been a member of the Crawley Down Pond Environmental Group since it started and have been the Chairman for the last 13 years. The pond group has been on hold since Covid started. Hopefully in time I would like to see the Pond Group start up again, so watch this space.
