Additional Information

Welcome to My Website


At the May 2017 elections I became an Isle of Wight County Councillor representing my ward; Brading, St Helens and Bembridge.


The residents in my ward put their faith in me as a representative; with my business experience, hardworking attitude and honesty, I believe I represent them well and have brought a fresh approach to the Isle of Wight Council. In May 2017 I was appointed an executive member of the council cabinet; my portfolio’s being Procurement, Waste Management and Special Projects.


I am honoured to be YOUR representative and work hard to provide a strong voice for residents.


And finally, I take a proactive stance in dealing with all enquiries and notified issues. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email, ‘phone or via County Hall correspondence address should you wish to raise any issue.


In May 2017, I stood for election and was successfully elected as candidate for the ward of Brading, St. Helens and Bembridge and subsequently appointed an executive member of the council cabinet by the Leader of the Council.

During my career I have held senior management positions in charge of multi-million Pound budgets across a diverse range of sectors including pensions, commodities and IT software delivery in the City of London, New York and Geneva. I now work as a Quality Control Engineer at Rolls Royce based at Whippingham.

I am a Trustee of the Bembridge Youth and Community Centre and a Local Authority Governor at St Helens Primary School.

Annual Report


Annual Report 2020


Councillor Michael Murwill – Brading, St Helens & Bembridge Ward


The first three years of being the elected member for my ward has passed so quickly and, as we started the new year, who could have imagined that we would be dealing with the far-reaching effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.


A large proportion of March and April 2020 has been spent in promoting community support during the COVID-19 lockdown and assisting residents and businesses within the ward with awareness of the various grants and allowances available from central Government.


Over the last year I have continued to support residents, schools and businesses within the ward and across the Island with a range of issues. This year has seen an increase in enquiries on planning and highway matters. In all contacts I have maintained a log to ensure a prompt response, an effective service from the IWC and, wherever possible, seek to obtain resolution on enquiries.


As a member of the Scrutiny and Audit Committees it provides an insight into future decisions made by the Council and a chance to challenge with positive comments.


I remain a Trustee of the Bembridge Youth and Community Centre assisting at various fundraising events. I remain the Local Authority Governor for St Helens Primary School.


As well as reporting to the Parish and Town Council meetings across the ward, I also have a monthly column in the Island and Beacon magazines to update residents and provide regular updates on Council initiatives and Island related matters via my Twitter and Facebook pages.


During this, the final year before elections, I will continue to be a strong voice for the residents. As always, I am proud to represent Brading, St Helens and Bembridge on the IWC and thank everyone for their support.
