About Tony

As a Conservative Councillor I represent the division of Calne Chilvester & Abberd since 2009 and Chair the North Area Planning Committee and a member of Strategic Planning where I have to consider the growth and implications to the economy in Calne and other Towns in the County. As member of Environmental Select I also have to consider the wider view towards sustainable growth when making decisions...

My Values

As a former businessman trading in Calne for over 44 years I can see the importance of the local economy in our smaller Market Towns and the need to support all those trades and individuals who rely on an income through vibrant workplaces.

I have had the honour of being Town Mayor three times 1992/93, 2002/03 and in 2017/18. In that time I have been a member of Calne`s Town , District and County Councils and now Unitary Council for over 30 years of which I have gained experience and the wish to continue my work for the benefit of residents in our Town and County.

Community Work

I Chair the Calne Heritage Centre Trust having been involved since the inception in 1994 supporting the tourism aspect to attract visitors to Calne from the UK and many other countries worldwide. I had been involved with other known local charities helping to raise money for our community.

Personal and Family background

I have lived, been educated and worked in Calne all my Life, I am married to Miriam, for 46 years and three of our children have been educated in Calne and live locally.

I wish to continue my work as a member of the Council to help residents in Calne during this unusual period as we have seen in 2020, and now into 2021 and to help our Town to be resilient when we get back to some sort of normality after Covid -19.
