Douglas Murray: Lower Willingdon
Douglas is an experienced Councillor serving some eight years on Willingdon Parish Council and now four years on Wealden District and Polegate Town, where as Chair of the Finance Committee keeping costs down delivered a rates increase of less than 1%.
Having known Willingdon all his life he objects to the wholesale housing development Willingdon has suffered with no infrastructure gain. Arguing at Wealden against further development in Willingdon, he was glad to see the 700 dwellings at Mornings Mill Farm absent from the 2018 Wealden Local Plan.
He is a Wannock Village Hall Trustee, serves on the Pevensey &Cuckmere Water Levels Management Board and is a director of Sussex Weald Homes Ltd. He is pleased to draw on his business experience in London and New York.
