Mayor Jim Boult
During my previous term as Mayor, I was delighted to see significant progress in the important areas of traffic and transport; the introduction of a visitor levy; the cost of housing; and adopting a clear vision for the future in Vision Beyond 2050. But there is still much I’d like to achieve for the district.
Our focus is now on the development of enduring strategies that will protect and enhance our unique natural environment whilst supporting the lifestyle that our thriving resident and visitor populations enjoy. These strategies must reflect the needs and aspirations of our community so please share your views with me and your Councillors – contact details for all your elected representatives are here.
