Paul Wood is one of our two Elmbridge Borough councillors representing Hersham and is Deputy Chairman (Political) of Esher & Walton Conservative Association.
Paul believes the past year has presented huge challenges and local government must rise to the challenge of helping society to recover. He believes that local services will always be under finance pressure, so councillors must focus on delivering excellence and efficiency. Before retiring, Paul held senior roles within major businesses, and he works closely with Hersham's Conservative borough and county councillors, and our MP, to provide a joined-up service for residents.
His priorities are the re-development of the Hersham shopping centre, the local environment, being an advocate for residents and delivering value for money.
