Lee is the leader of the Labour group, leader of the opposition on Adur District council and sits on Adur’s Planning Committee. He also sits on Lancing Parish Council and chairs the Amenities and Environment committee.
Lee has worked hard to represent Mash Barn and Lancing at Adur District Council, bringing forward Labour values and building up a personal trust with residents. He ran a campaign against the impact of the New Monks Farm development and has recently fundraised to install two automated external defribrillators in his ward
He seeks to help constituents become better informed about their local council’s obligations towards them and ensure the Conservative administration is held to account on the basis of their duties under the Localism Act, their Equality Duties and their constituted obligations as set out in their Code of Conduct. Lee said: “I will work hard to promote and advance the root values of the Labour Party and strive to discharge my duties consistent with those values”.
