Alan has lived in Lordswood for over 30 years, and has represented the Lordswood area since 2003. He has been Leader of Medway Council since 2015, holding responsibility for the strategic leadership of the council, finance and communications. He represents Medway at county and regional level in order to drive forward Medway’s regeneration and improve wealth. Before 2015, he was Deputy Leader for 15 years.

He lives in Ballens Road, Lordswood with his wife Denise, and their youngest son David.

Alan believes in protecting Capstone Valley, low council tax, value for money, offering choice, and providing the services residents deserve. He rates among his most important recent achievements for Lordswood and Capstone as persuading cabinet colleagues not to sell access over council-owned land to Gibraltar Farm – thereby preventing imminent development in the Capstone Valley. 

Alan also works in business consultancy – mainly with other councils around the country. He is an author, and has published 12 books on country sports and the countryside.
