Derrick Ashley

County Councillor for Hitchin South

About Derrick

I have a regional role representing Hertfordshire on the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority as well as serving on regional bodies representing my portfolio.  Locally, I have served as a school governor for 30 years and I am a trustee of a number of local charities including the Hitchin Educational Foundation which provides an endowment to the local secondary schools and local children of about £70,000 per annum. I have always taken a particular interest in planning issues and have campaigned to ensure Hitchin retains its character and is not overwhelmed by large scale development.
