Councillor Brian Tyndall – Brading, St Helens and Bembridge Ward
In May 2017 I was voted in to serve as one of the two Ward Councillors for Brading, St Helens and Bembridge – securing the largest personal vote on the Island!
Supporting local residents in their requests has been paramount, as has been working with the three Parish/Town Councils within the Ward; all with whom I have a good rapport.
The role as County Councillor, and with the responsibility of looking at matters in an Island-wide way, has been and will continue to be challenging.
It is to make the Island the place where islanders can work, live and enjoy its natural beauty.
I currently sit on six committees: Planning, Adult Social Care, Scrutiny, Appeals and Appointments and the Regeneration Board. Since May 2019 I have been Chair of the Audit Committee.
I retired from full time in employment at the end of September 2018 and this has allowed me more time to dedicate to Council business. In 2018 I attended over 25 formal meetings – and a large number of informal and training meetings.
This work is not always in the front of peoples’ minds when they think about their County Councillor’s role, but it is vital to ensure the multi-million pound business that the IOW Council is – operates in an effective and efficient manner.
The role of County Councillor was best described to me when discussing this with then Deputy Prime Minister David Lidington MP, I asked how he was enjoying his then Cabinet appointment – “intellectually challenging” was his phrase – it certainly is and will continue to be so.
I look forward to continuing to support the local ward residents, and the residents of the Island.
