Bricket Wood Ward Councillors

Bricket Wood Ward

Bricket Wood Ward is the western part of the Parish and is divided into Bricket Wood East and Bricket Wood West, as shown on the map, with one Councillor representing Bricket Wood East and three representing Bricket Wood West.

The Parish Councillors for each part of the Ward are shown below, along with a short biography, details of their membership of Council Committees, Task and Finish Groups and representation on outside organisations and contact details.

Bricket Wood West

I joined the Council in 2011, serving three years as Vice Chair and a further three as Chair.

Residents often speak of the ‘village feel’ of the Parish. My priorities have been to build on this, firstly through improving leisure facilities and outside spaces, secondly developing a series of events and activities to enhance our sense of community and finally to challenge inappropriate development, especially that targeted at the Green Belt.

I believe planning for the future is key and I was instrumental in the development of a long term Strategic Plan to help make sure our local needs are prioritised over the coming years and that administrative efficiencies continue to deliver best value for council tax payers.

I have lived in Bricket Wood for more than 50 years and have been a parish councillor for almost two decades.

I am passionate about preserving our sense of community and enjoy organising events on behalf of the Parish that can help bring us together.

I strive to safeguard our play areas; as a mother of five and a grandmother of 11, I really do understand the importance of the improvement and upkeep of these valuable spaces for all generations to enjoy. Our parish is surrounded by beautiful and historical countryside and I am proud to be a part of a council that helps to maintain this.

Preserving our unique parish, improving its amenities and protecting the green belt from development were the reasons I became a parish councillor and I hope to continue serving the community in this role.

I’ve lived next to Bricket Wood Common for more than 35 years, and have over 40 years experience as a structural surveyor. As such, I’ve taken a lead role in planning and development issues in the parish.

I also sit on the Bricket Wood Common Joint Management Committee which works to protect and maintain this valuable rural space.

Bricket Wood East

After moving to London in the early 80s, I became a frequent visitor to Bricket Wood Common and the footpaths in the south of the district.

My work in card-based payment systems, however, took me much further afield. After travelling extensively as a family we moved, in 1999, to the area we had previously visited as an escape from London.

I was elected to St Albans District Council in 2004 and have served the people of Park Street and Bricket Wood as a ward councillor for 17 years, originally as a member of a political party but, from 2018, as an independent.
