Cllr Robert Newby
After graduating from Brunel University, Rob ran his own construction company, in London and moved to the area with his family in 1986. Rob and his wife have now lived in the Borough for over 20 years and he now has the time to concentrate on important local issues that are affecting our community. Rob is determined to work for the good of our Town. He feels very strongly that there much that to do as a community to preserve and improve the quality of life for everyone living locally.Rob has become increasingly drawn towards environmental issues and developed a commercial woodland project with the Forestry Commission for 20 years, successfully Coppicing an area of Wakerley Woods. This led to Rob becoming a Director of the National Coppice Federation. He continues to work with many such groups in this area. At present he is concluding, for the year, a tree planting project which has been a focus during the recent interesting months.
