Ian has always been a committed Conservative supporter and voter. Shortly after marrying Helen they moved to Lower Sunbury where they have lived for the last 22 years. Ian and Helen have two school age sons.
Ian was elected a Borough Councillor for Sunbury East in May 2013, and re-elected in 2015. Ian has always taken a special interest in Ward issues. Ian has always worked closely with local residents associations and is particularly strident in his determination to protect Kempton Park from unwanted development.
Ian was elected Leader of Spelthorne Borough Council in February 2016 and pioneered and leads the groundbreaking investment property policy which has revolutionised our local authority funding. For the last three years this has protected Spelthorne from having to make cuts to services or draw on reserves. The Council, under Ian’s leadership, is now turning its attention to addressing the housing needs of Spelthorne residents. Ian continues to be committed to the residents of Lower Sunbury.
When time allows, Ian is a keen photographer and also enjoys skiing and travelling.
Ian was re-elected as a Conservative Councillor for the Sunbury East Ward in 2 May 2019 local election
