Cllr Tony Leech

Member for the Ward of Okehampton North

Cllr Tony Leech

I have been elected as ward Councillor of Okehampton East, a position I have held since May 2011.  I am also a member of the Okehampton Town Council and have been for fifteen years, where I had the privilege of being the Town Mayor for three years.

I have spent some forty years in conservation and twenty eight of these with English Heritage, and my last position before I retired was as the Conservation / Property Maintenance Manager for the west of England.  During my time with English Heritage I held positions in most of the regions across England.

Since my retirement, I have worked on a voluntary basis with the Museum of Dartmoor Life, and the Ockment Community Centre in Okehampton, and as a qualified Building Surveyor, I also assist my wife with her own small business.

I have to admit that with my work as an elected Councillor, I do not have a lot of time for other interests, but I am a member of the Lions International Club, where I am the present Heath and Safety Officer for the Okehampton Branch.

I am a member of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and I still take a great interest in everything that involves our built heritage.

I have also taken an interest (along with others) in looking at green energy and carbon saving for the community.
