Ventnor Town Council Mayor

Cllr Steve Cooper

In May of this year, I had the honour of my fellow Ventnor Town Councillors voting me in as the Chair or (Mayor), of our town council. The position does not really afford any special powers other than chairing the council meetings and being the council’s representative at local events and on official occasions. However, it is a leadership role and I very much want you the residents to be part of the decision-making process.

With partnership working, we can develop a strategic vision for our local area. We can build a strong vision based on our unique Ventnor identity and the priorities of you, the residents of Ventnor, St.Lawrence, Bonchurch and Lowtherville. Partnership working, I believe, should not just be about delivery, but dialogue with you and your involvement in decision making.  We need clear goals and narratives on how best to meet the needs of residents. Which will create mutual trust in each, the foundation of a successful future.

With this in mind, please do let me have your thoughts and ideas going forward, no matter how big or small. I want to hear from you.
