Welcome to Roger's page

Roger West is honorary President of BIA

He was Liberal Democrat Councillor for Redhill and Northbourne Ward for 16 years from 1999 to 2015.

Roger stood as an Independent in 2015 with BIA support but was swept away by the 'Tory tsunami'. The By-Election offers voters the chance to get Roger's experience back into the Council Chamber, where he has always been known as one of the few who actually read all the documentation !!

He has repeatedly 'blown the whistle' where standards have fallen short. For instance;

• Councillors failing properly to declare their interests in respect of planning issues.
A Tory Leader found to have inappropriate images on his Council laptop
Mismanagement by Councillors of the surfing reef contract at Boscombe

Roger is continuing his work of scrutiny and using his long experience to assist neighbours with problems such as flooding.
