Nick serves the ward of College Town on the Bracknell Forest Council and is also on the Sandhurst Town Council.
"I have lived in College Town for over 25 years with my wife and two children, both of which attended College Town Schools where I have also served as a Governor.
I was elected to Bracknell Forest Council at the Borough elections in May 2011 and have served the residents of College Town ever since. I serve on numerous committees covering areas such as Adult Social Care, Health & Housing, Children & Learning, Employment, Licencing & Safety and Governance & Audit, the latter two of which I chair.
I am acutely aware that the first priority of a Councillor is to serve the residents of College Town whom we represent. One of the reasons that I serve on such a wide range of committees is to get a deep understanding of how the Council works in these areas, so that I can provide a speedy resolution to residents’ issues.
Bracknell Forest is one of the top councils in the country and was awarded Council of the Year by iESE in 2018. The Council has spent the last four years transforming its services in order to maintain the level of service whilst having its Government grant cut by over £20M.
Despite this, our Council Tax is still one of the lowest of any Unitary Authority in the country. This has been achieved through a combination of prudent financial management and the ability to find more innovative ways of providing services."
