The Labour Party has taken control of Crawley Borough Council following the local elections on May 22nd.
Crawley Labour held their four council seats that were up for election and won four from the Tories in Ifield, West Green, Southgate and Broadfield South.
Labour needed 3 net gains to win the council but now has four new councillors: Tim Lunnon, Karen Sudan, Raj Sharma and John Stanley.
The results mean there are 20 Labour councillors, 16 Conservatives and 1 UKIP - UKIP won no seats on the night.
Group leader Pete Lamb said they would start work as soon as possible to improve the town and to attract new business to the area.
The result is a boost for the General Election campaign and Labour's parliamentary candidate in Crawley, Chris Oxlade.
Crawley Labour will continue to campaign over the next 12 months so when they come to a door near you please share your local concerns and ideas for change.
