Mayor Councillor Richard Hovey

Mayor Councillor Richard Hovey

I believe it is very important to retain and develop the separate identities of the communities within Sandbach, Wheelock, Sandbach Heath, Ettiley Heath, Elworth.

I have had a lifelong interest in building, from Lego blocks and Meccano to planning and architectural design.  I bring experience of local council planning and finance.  

I was brought up in Sandbach, attending St John primary school and Sandbach School.  I currently manage the family business, an industrial park which has been based in Wheelock since 1919. This follows a previous career in IT with Barclays, Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motors and the University of Manchester.

 

The Mayor is an ex-officio member, with voting rights, of all the Council’s Committee’s, sub-committee’s and working groups.
