Your Council

Cllr Will Wright

I have lived in Green Street with my wife Anne and two children for four years now, having been in Bishops Stortford for a decade and London and Edinburgh before that. We all have fun pottering about in our garden, jumping on the trampoline and playing games.

I am a Chartered Surveyor and very much enjoy my work for the City of London Corporation where I manage the team responsible for potential development projects within the Corporate Estate, which includes assets like Tower Bridge, Epping Forest, Hampstead Heath, the Barbican, Old Bailey, Smithfield Market and quite a lot more; we are also responsible for looking after hundreds of heritage assets and wonderfully but slightly bizarrely the Lord Mayor's State Coach.

I became a councillor because I am so proud and privileged to live in Little Hadham and I want to help protect and enhance our parish. A major driver for me to put my hand up was the potential bypass and flood alleviation scheme; I kept hearing complaints from what I now realise are a vocal minority and I wanted to do all I could to make sure quieter opinions are heard so that this vital infrastructure project has a chance of being delivered.

My special Council responsibility is wider strategy and opportunity. As of May 2016 we have started the process of creating a community led Neighbourhood Plan which will keep us busy for a year or two. The Neighbourhood Plan is a really important piece of work that will benefit Little Hadham for many years to come and I thank the team who have volunteered to help create it; we will always welcome more volunteers, so please let us know if you are interested.
