PRESTON WARD

 WARD COUNCILLORS ELECTED 7th MAY 2015

 Chris Lewis

 I am a privileged to represent the people of Preston on Torbay Council.  Over the period I have managed to help many residents with their problems and requests. 

 Working for the people of Preston and Torbay.

 In addition to working as your Ward Councillor I have also held the position of Deputy Mayor and the Cabinet member for Economic Regeneration, Planning and Transport.  In those positions I have led with the team on a number of projects including:  the complete refurbishment of Rock Walk, ending the contract with NCP, new business parks at Edginswell and White Rock , the Cockington project, new branded hotels in the Bay and many more.

Along with your other Preston Councillors we are working in partnership with the vibrant and successful Preston Community Partnership.  We have worked together on include the future of Oldway,  Parkfield New Youth Centre and Hollicombe.  In addition we have been active on the Partnership Committee and attended the Public Meetings listening to what you have to say.

The backbone of our economy in Preston and Torbay is the small and medium size companies, I have been active in Business all my life I know how national and local government can help or hinder them.  If Torbay is to compete with Plymouth, Exeter and the rest of the Country we have to encourage greater economic regeneration in the Bay, Torbay Council must be there to help!

I believe with my experience, determination and business background will strengthen  the team  making Torbay a better place to Live, Work and Visit.
