Councillor Claire Douglas
I am born and bred in Northampton and have lived in East Hunsbury since the house was built in 1989. I have been a Parish Councillor since 2017 and have just started my 4th term as Chairman.
I worked for Northamptonshire County Council for 21 years and was a Senior Budget Manager responsible for 3 departments and a 5 million pound budget, giving me an insight into public sector finance. The public service ethos has been instilled in me for a very long time!
I am very keen to promote and enhance our lovely open spaces in East Hunsbury and to do everything possible to avoid any future flooding issues. I am working with a number of bodies to find solutions to support our residents in this regard. As Chairman, it is my duty to ensure best value for the rate payers.
On a personal note my particular passion is open water swimming and I enjoy a good long walk with my husband.
Claire is Chairman of the Parish Council, and a member of the Resources Committee and the Parks and Open Spaces Committee.
