Cllr Ian Fullerton
Councillor and Planning Chair
Born and educated in Canada, I came to England in 1966 to do postgraduate research at Imperial College. In 1981 I moved to Swallowfield with my wife and children and, over the years, have become very familiar with Swallowfield and our local community.
My working life spanned a range of operational and management roles, several with leading international companies, and concluded as an independent business consultant.
Following retirement, I sought an opportunity to use the knowledge and experience gained through a lifetime in business and industry to ‘give something back’ to society. This led to me joining the charity ‘South Bucks Riding for the Disabled Association’ where I served for 9 years as Trustee and Group Treasurer.
More recently I looked for opportunities to make a contribution closer to home and was fortunate to join the council in 2020. Since joining SPC I have been focussed on traffic calming measures and how we can improve the comfort and safety of our local roads for all users.
I have a particular interest in protecting our local environment and the rural character of our village.
