Cllr Richard Price - South Smallburgh
Download my election leaflet here.
Cllr Richard Price is the current county councillor for the South Smallburgh division.
Having spent some 40 years in the hotel and restaurant industry, I now have the privilege of continuing to serve in a different way. I was first elected to North Norfolk District Council in 2007, and then became able to serve more villages as a County Councillor in 2017. Over the past four years I have been a member of the Norfolk Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee, ensuring that our health concerns are recognised. I also sit on the County Scrutiny Committee representing your views.
I make a huge effort to attend parish council meetings across the division, and have a close relationship with parish clerks, who can rely on my taking forward all concerns with County, as well as working with our MP, Duncan Baker, who is a close friend of many years. I also represent Norfolk on the Regional Flood and Coastal Committee, which covers Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, where I am able to highlight flooding issues in Norfolk.
I remain totally committed and available to serve the population and listen to and resolve issues, using all the experience I have gained over the last 14 years.
Priorities for South Smallburgh
- I will continue funding methods for road safety and speeding in our villages, having provided and financed five villages with Sam 2 speed cameras already. The new Conservative County Council budget proposes that this County Councillors' Highways Budget be increased, with an increase in scope which will enable me to help more.
- I will continue doing everything I can to resolve flooding issues, which have had such a devastating effect for far too long.
- I will use all the County opportunities to help local businesses and private citizens recover safely after Covid-19.
If you'd like to discuss any issues or local concerns or find out more about me, please do get in touch - I'd love to hear from you. If you need help registering for a postal vote, I can help you with that too.
