David Anthony

Buckinghamshire Council

David Anthony

South Bucks District Councillor     2011 - present

   Elected in May 2011 as a Conservative member for the Farnham Royal Ward, and re-elected in 2015.

  • I have served in the SBDC cabinet with responsibility for Resources, and am currently chairman of the Audit Committee and a member of the Planning Committee and the Healthy Communities Policy Advisory Group.
  • Served on three of the working groups advising on the sharing of services between Chiltern DC and SBDC. We achieved efficiency improvements along with cost savings of hundreds of thousands of pounds per annum.
  • I try my best to represent and help my residents and am active on their behalf on local issues, for example:
    •  Opposing inappropriate Green Belt development, such as the proposed Lynch Hill School (now relocated to Slough) and the M&S waste recycling centre, which was recently refused planning permission.
    • Dealing with illegal Traveller incursions. Following extensive discussions the police and council response has become much quicker and more effective and the problem is greatly diminished.
    • Helping residents with their individual problems on planning, rubbish collection and other matters.
    • Regularly attending meetings of the Parish Council in order to understand clearly local concerns.

career, education and personal

My career has been spent mostly in financial services. I was CEO of Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC until 2010, and Chairman of PCF Group plc, a small bank, until the end of 2016. I believe my specialist financial and organisational skills have been of great use to SBDC and will be of great use to the new Unitary council.

Luisa Sullivan

Buckinghamshire Candidate

The role of a county councillor is predominately that of a communicator. Being able to engage with all residents and community groups and balancing the needs and interests of residents, with council policy and its services, at all council tier levels.

I have been active in the community for many years, and have built solid relationships with many of our community groups. 

Over these last 25 years you’ve given me an insight and understanding of how our local community feels about their environment, its needs, its development and growth and aspirations for our younger generation.

There are many developments and projects happening in The Ivers. Alongside these, we need to plan for more community facilities, develop the road network and address the congestion problems.

We need to balance the need for housing, with affordable and cost saving initiatives like shared equity and self-build opportunities, alongside protecting our precious Green Belt and open spaces.

A tall order and this task requires your County Council representative to hold integrity, honesty and rational level thinking, to be an effective communicator, negotiator and team member, able to work with different local authority tiers and in partnership with other organisations to deliver positive outcomes for our community.

If you would like to speak to me or have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Ralph Bagge

Buckinghamshire Council Candidate

I have lived in Stoke Poges since 1995, and both our children went to The Stoke Poges School, where my wife teaches music. I started taking an interest in local politics around the time of the Bells Hill redevelopment and was elected to Stoke Poges Parish Council in 2010, being elected Chairman the following year. I was elected to South Bucks District Council, representing Stoke Poges in 2011, where I became Chairman of the Planning Committee, and after re-election, in 2015 I became Leader of the Council, working regularly with County colleagues on issues including housing, health and the local economy. With my experience of local government, you can rely on me to represent your concerns effectively at County Hall.

I believe that South Bucks is a great place to live in – we have beautiful tree-lined roads and the openness of the Green Belt while enjoying the excellent road, rail and air access. I’m passionate about preserving our quality of life and ensuring that South Bucks remains a great place to live. I'm determined to see off the threat from Slough to build on our Green Belt and to preserve the semi-rural character of our quiet villages that we all enjoy so much.
