Statement to voters

Peter is the Labour councillor for Northgate and West Green, having represented Northgate as a councillor since 2010.

Full statement

From 2012 to 2022, he served as Leader of the Labour Group on Crawley Borough Council, for eight years of which as Council Leader. Outside of Crawley Borough Council, he represented Northgate and Three Bridges on West Sussex County Council from 2013 to 2017 and was the Labour candidate for Crawley at the 2019 General Election.

Born and educated in Crawley, Peter joined the Labour Party whilst still a student at Holy Trinity, having come to realise the unfair life opportunities felt by many of his classmates. Two decades on, reversing child poverty and Crawley’s appallingly limited social mobility continue to be two of his biggest political motivations. As Leader of Crawley Borough Council, Peter oversaw the return of council housebuilding to a scale not seen in decades, the development and implementation of plans designed to improve economic opportunities for Crawley residents, and balanced budgets which until the pandemic successfully avoided the loss of any frontline services despite budget cuts from central government.

In his day job, Peter works as a social researcher, providing insight for the NHS and other public sector bodies on how to best meet the needs and expectations of service users.

This statement was added by Peter Lamb, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
