Cllr John Stephenson (Chipstead, Hooley & Woodmansterne)

A Chipstead resident for 40 years, on retirement from my profession as an accountant in 2007, I was elected to the Borough Council.

As a Councillor, I have served on the Planning and Overview and Scrutiny Committees, overseeing the key financial and development policies of the Council. I have also served as Deputy Mayor for two years.

I am currently on the Board of Trustees of Age Concern Banstead and the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. My wife and I are both active members of the community, and I am seeking your support to continue as one of the local representatives for our area.
