Crawley Borough Council looks at grounds for appeal

Crawley Borough Council is looking at whether it has grounds for appeal after losing a High Court challenge against a ten-storey block of flats.

The council was disappointed by the judge's decision not to support its opposition to the 270-home scheme in Russell Way, Three Bridges.
