Malcolm Cowan

County Councillor for Handside and Peartree

Borough Councillor for Peartree

Malcolm Cowan

Malcolm Cowan has represented Peartree on the borough council since 2008 and is leader of the LibDem group. He represented Handside and Peartree on the county council from 2005 to 2016.

He says "The Conservatives will tell you all is well in the world, because they have keep council tax down. But venture out either by car, cycle or on foot, and you will see the massive problems we face on our roads and footpaths - potholes that the highways contractor seems unable to fix, large parts of our towns plunged into darkness at midnight and the major difficulties of getting around by bus, particularly going east or west.

Then there is the lack of community activities, surely a factor in the rise in anti-social behaviour seen in many parts of our district.

Nearly 20 years on, we are still waiting for action on Splashlands.

And much of the borough is plagued by lack of parking spaces and lack of action over parking on footpaths and verges.

I am determined the council must do better."

The Peartree is held on the first Saturday of every month. For further details, please see the Surgeries page.
