Cllr Alison Foster

Cllr Alison Foster has been the representative for Harrold Ward since the election in 2011, serving the villages of; Wymington; Little Wymington; Podington; Hinwick; Farndish, Odell; Harrold; Carlton, and; Chellington. 

Alison currently sits on the Licensing and Planning Committees and the Education Transport Appeals panel.  In addition, she is the Council’s Conservative representative on the Bedfordshire Police and Crime Panel, which scrutinises the actions of the Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner.  In this role Alison is keen to ensure that the rural residents receive their fair share of police time and resources. She is also a member of Age UK Bedfordshire, the Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity and is a Trustee of Emmaus Village, Carlton.

Alison has fought against inappropriate development in the countryside and is keen to preserve the rural way of life in her Ward.  She has fought against wind farm development, the closure of rural pubs and in particular against the development of inappropriate Gypsy & Traveller sites in the rural areas.  In this regard, she put pressure on the Council to deliver the Council owned Meadow Lane site next to the A603.  Without the Meadow Lane site the rural areas would be more vulnerable to speculative development on inappropriate private sites.

In addition to her work as a Councillor, Alison is a solicitor specialising in Private Client work, mainly Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate and Trusts. She lives in Bletsoe.
