Your Councillors are Cllr Douglas Auld, Cllr Simon Fawthrop J.P. & Cllrs Tony Owen

Cllr Douglas Auld

I have been a Councillor since 2006 and represent Petts Wood & Knoll Ward. My background was in the Metropolitan Police and then with Securicor.

Currently I am the Chairman of the Public Protection & Safety Policy Development & Scrutiny Committee, a Member of the Development Control Committee, Deputy Chairman of Plans Sub-Committee 3 and a member of Sub-Committee 1.

I had the honour to be the Mayor of Bromley in 2009/10.

I regularly attend business and resident’s association meetings in the Ward and the Safer Neighbourhood Panel.

Apart from the committee work as above I see my role as looking after the interests of all the residents in the Ward in relation to the Council and assisting these residents when queries arise. I look forward to continuing to do so until at least the next Council Elections in 2014.

Key Facts

Petts Wood & Knoll ward, as the name suggests covers the town centre & residential area of Petts Wood & the residential area between Petts & Orpington known as The Knoll. Petts Wood is split into East & West by the railway station & is believed to be named after the woodland, owned by the Pett family, which existed before 1930 when many of the current houses were built. Petts Wood Town centre has a large selection of small, independently owned shops & restaurants at its heart, creating a vibrant centre that is rare in the days of increasingly homogenised high-streets.

The Station Square area of Petts Wood town centre is part of a Conservation area, with Petts Wood East being an Area of Special Residential Character (ASRC).   Petts Wood West & The Knoll are quiet suburban residential areas. The Knoll sits between Petts Wood East & Orpington high street. The Conservatives, in particular the Conservative Councillors for the Ward, work hard to ensure that both Petts Wood & The Knoll maintain their quiet & characterful appeal to residents.

Please contact either Phil or Richard for further details and information about the Branch by contacting Orpington Association at No 6 Sevenoaks Road, Orpington,  Kent, BR6 9JJ.  Telephone 01689 820347 or e-mail PWK@orpingtonconservatives.com.
