    Clive Urquhart

    Standing for election to Bracknell Forest Borough Council.

    I started work aged 15 as an apprentice sheet metal worker and retired a few years ago as the UK manufacturing director of a large engineering company. I am married have 4 grown up children and 2 beautiful granddaughters and have lived in Sandhurst for 48 years.

    I am keen to become your Councillor because I want to end the situation that sees Bracknell Forest Council completely dominated by one party, which I regard as unhealthy for democracy and therefore ultimately not good for us all.

    I am particularly concerned at the lack of social and real affordable housing locally; I would welcome an increase in local community policing. As a past governor of Sandhurst school I am keen to support the whole school, pupils, teaching staff and parents. Due to poor eyesight I no longer drive and so public transport is important to me, I regularly ride the 194 and will want to improve bus services wherever possible. I am a regular user of the leisure centre in Bracknell and am anxious to ensure that having had loads of public money spent on it, it doesn’t lose its service to the community ethos.

    Matt White

    Standing for election to Bracknell Forest Borough Council.

    I was born in Edinburgh and gained a degree in Physics from Edinburgh University.
    In 1975, I moved to Bracknell Forest and started work at the then Transport and Road Research laboratory. I remained in the Scientific Civil Service for the whole of my career, working in transport science and research policy and management. While at TRRL I worked on the behaviour of traffic in fog and on route guidance systems. I move to Department Headquarters in 1983 to work on traffic modelling. Latterly, I was a member of the Chief Scientific Adviser’s Unit.

    I was a member of the board of Governors for a Bracknell primary school for twelve years, and was chair for four of those years. I am now retired, but keep active through a number of charitable and sporting activities. I have lived in the borough continuously since 1975. I have always been happy living in Bracknell Forest, particular given the amount green space, and the quality of its leisure and recreational facilities. South Hill Park is a good example. I am married with one daughter.

    As a Councillor , my priorities would be:
    To secure the provision of adequate affordable housing.
    To improve the environment, particularly air quality.
    To secure the future and expansion of early years support and family centres.
