Cookies that help with our communications and marketing
Some pages may contain content from other sites, like YouTube, which may set their own cookies. These are sometimes called ‘third party’ services. This tells us how many people are seeing the content and whether it’s useful.
In addition, if you share a link to a crawley.gov.uk page, the service you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie. We have no control over cookies set on other websites - you can turn them off, but not through us.
We use YouTube to show videos on some pages. YouTube sets cookies when you visit one of these pages.
