David Barnard

District Councillor for Hitchwood, Offa and Hoo & County Councillor for Hitchin Rural

About David

I was first elected as a District Councillor in 1991 and as a County Councillor in 2013, and have had the privilege of representing our beautiful rural area in many ways, over many years.

I have seen many changes, and by working hard, and making many friends and contacts, I have, with my fellow Councillors, been proud to see positive improvements in many areas, and a protection against unwanted intrusion into others.

Each village and community is unique. It is by building up a strong local knowledge and understanding, with valuable local partnerships, that I have been proud to support local initiatives and projects, which benefit our communities.

There is always much more to do, and new challenges to meet.

Update from David Barnard & Faye Frost

Councillors’ Annual Reports 2019

Once again, this has been a busy and diverse year at each Council level.

There have been, and remains, many issues which require constant attention.

Councillors' Comments

The District Council elections are complete, boxes emptied, and votes counted, and, as anticipated, there was a “protest vote” against the political shenanigans at Parliament level.
