Alan represents the Edenbridge South and West Ward on Sevenoaks District Council.
"Since being elected as a Sevenoaks District Councillor representing Edenbridge Town Council South and West Ward, I have been involved in developing the Sevenoaks Local Plan ensuring our town’s future development is carried out in such a way that we retain our Market Town status. Also, I want to make sure that our historic town is protected from unsuitable development in our conservation areas and green belt whilst recognising the need for housing. As Vice Chairman of Edenbridge Town Council and Chairman of the Planning Committee, I will continue to ensure that our precept and community infrastructure levy is spent efficiently to benefit the community. I am personally involved in the Edenbridge Business Forum encouraging and supporting local businesses, including high street retailers, while recognising the needs of business and employment. If I am re-elected, I would consider it a privilege to represent Edenbridge town as your District Councillor."
