Ever wondered what a Borough Councillor's role entails?




Ever wondered what a Borough Councillor's role entails?
I did! I was elected as a Councillor for the Lynn South & West ward of the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk on 5th May 2011.

A little bit about me:
I have lived in South Lynn for 7 years with my wife and work locally for the Norfolk Primary Care Trust as an IT Manager.

I am a Labour Councillor and whilst the local Labour group made some encouraging gains in the May elections (moving from 4 councillors to 13) we are still very much a minority opposition as the Tories hold 42 of the 64 council seats.

£20m wind farm plans unveiled - Business - Lynn News

I attended an exhibition at Terrington St Clement this afternoon, held to give more information to local residents about the wind farm planned for Ongar Hill.

I am sure this will prove to be the next big contentious issue in West Norfolk (or perhaps the idea is to try and get it pushed through whilst the big bad spectre of an incinerator is taking up everyone's campaign energy) so wanted to find out more.

There were some very interesting mocked up photographs that showed how the wind farm would look from various aspects around the borough - though they all had the benefit of foliage on trees helping to obscure the view.
