Hi, I’m Alistair Bradley
A Lancashire Labour Point Of View
I have been a Labour Party member since my late teens and a Chorley Borough Councillor since 2008. I have had the privilege of serving as the Executive Leader of Chorley Council since 2012.
Born and brought up in Eccleston, I now live in Chorley with my wife and we have 2 grown-up children.
I am a qualified Quantity Surveyor and currently work in the construction industry as a Commercial and Project Consultant, which forms a contrast at times to the political role I undertake at the Council.
I have a passion for Regeneration and Wealth Building and have served as the Council’s Executive member for Economic Development for a number of years.
In addition to the Chorley Council role I have also undertaken a variety of other roles over recent years including:
- Sitting as an appointed Governor on the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust Council of Governors.
- A currently appointed Councillor on Lancashire Police and Crime Panel which I chaired from 2017 to 2022.
- Current Chair of the Lancashire District Leaders Group (formed of all the District Councils across Lancashire) and a member of the Lancashire Leaders steering group currently implementing the Lancashire 2050 programme and devolution framework.
- I also represent all the Lancashire Districts on the recently constituted Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Partnership which forms a part of the wider Integrated Care System in our area.
Over the past 20 years, I have forged strong links with many politicians across Lancashire, the North- West and in Westminster, based on strong Chorley traits of listening to others, straight talking and seeing all problems as an opportunity.
Away from work and politics I enjoy most sports in particular football, cricket and Rugby League and was previously a Chair of Chorley Wanderers Junior Football Club and School Governor at Parklands School in the town.
My Lancashire Labour Point Of View
I want to see Labour deliver a Happier, Healthier and Wealthier Future for us all. My thoughts on current issues facing our communities
