I serve alongside two brilliant ward colleagues, Stephen Stark and Tom Currie. Like me, they work tirelessly for the residents of Hampstead Town to ensure it remains the best place in London to live.

Cllr Stephen Stark

Cllr Stephen Stark lives and works in the heart of Hampstead village and is married with a ten-year-old son who attends a local school. Living and working here, Stephen experiences local issues first-hand.

Stephen is a member of the Heath & Hampstead Society and the Safer Neighbourhood Team Panel for Hampstead Town, and is a governor at New End School.

As a parent, Stephen is interested in educational development. Educated in North West London state schools, he had to work hard to put himself through college and university, and his experience impressed upon him the importance of good local schools.

Stephen has initiated several local campaigns, which he feels strongly about. He successfully campaigned for a safer crossing point on New End for children at surrounding schools. He has also actively assisted residents affected by basement developments. He was one of the engineers for the residents that successfully opposed the plans for the development at the old Nurses Home at 29 New End.

Cllr Tom Currie

Tom began his career in high street banking and now works as an investment and project manager. His job involves working with listed buildings, so aiming to ensure that our heritage is retained is naturally an important aspect of his day-to-day work. In addition, he serves as a governor of St Paul’s Primary School in South Hampstead.

Tom is particularly concerned about a number of challenges that Hampstead faces over the coming years. The threat of the High Street and South End Road becoming ‘clone towns’; increasing traffic congestion in South End Green, Whitestone Pond, and Heath Street; and the profligacy of grandiose and disruptive basement developments are just three of the major concerns that he hears from constituents on a daily basis.

Hamish Hunter

Hamish is standing to replace Tom Currie as councillor in Hampstead Town in the 2018 election. He lives in Nassington Road, went to school in Hampstead, and has been an active part of the community and an invaluable colleague.

Hamish is especially passionate about improving our environment. He’s volunteered to monitor pollution levels near schools in Hampstead, and would work with residents to try to solve Hampstead’s traffic problems.

He strongly backs the Neighbourhood Plan to preserve our area’s local character. That also requires protecting the Heath, defending and improving local green spaces, and planting more trees.

As a barrister and having taught law to undergraduates, he’d use his skills to scrutinise Camden and hold the administration to account for Hampstead residents.
