Wealden District Council member for Hailsham West, Chairman of Hailsham Conservatives and Wealden Conservative Association Officer. Richard seeks re-election to the district council in May's elections.
I have lived In Hailsham for over forty years and married to Susan.
Before retirement I ran a fresh food shop in the town centre. Since retirement I have set up the charity Environment Hailsham which raises the funds to grow, plant and maintain the floral displays in Hailsham, keeping our town looking beautiful.
I have served on Wealden District Council for the past eight years, being the Chairman of the Audit, Finance and Governance committee, also vice-Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny and Licensing committee. Positions I hope to continue if re-elected.
I am also Armed Forces Champion for Wealden, a position which I feel very privileged to hold being a veteran myself.
Planning Fact – I have worked hard to stop planning applications that you do not want:
- Woodpecker Drive: Refused,
- Gleneagles: Refused, The Belfry/Western Road: Refused,
- Forest View: Refused.
Re-elect me on 4th May and I promise to continue on your behalf.
