Cllr Karen Chilvers

Dedicated and experienced councillor Karen Chilvers is to stand in her beloved Brentwood West ward on 7 May 2020, having first won it in 2007. Karen has worked tirelessley with residents since then and has a strong record of action and achievement.

Karen, 48, a marketing manager turned children's author, said

"I am delighted to have been selected to stand again in this fantastic and varied part of Brentwood. I hope residents will want to continue working with me and my councillor colleagues Sarah Cloke, David Kendall and Dominic Naylor. I know we are the team to get things done by the colossal amount of casework we get through!"

"Looking back over 13 years, my personal highlights include getting a post box in Clements Park (2019), fighting successfully to stop a major development in Honeypot Lane (2018), a successful challenge to keep a post office on Warley Hill (2007), getting the bridge signage in Weald Road made safe (2019) and convincing the Highway Agency that the Brook Street roundabout signage was unsafe and needed review (2011).

"Since an accident in 2015, I am disabled and have used the insight from this to make the borough 'Zero Tolerance'" on use of blue badge spaces, the crossing in William Hunter Way (WHW) corrected to make it wheelchair-friendly and secured over a dozen new blue badge spaces in the WHW car park".
