Colin Smith

Borough Councillor for Bickley
Colin has lived in Bromley since 1963. He has been married for over 30 years to a Health professional and has served on the Council since 2002.

Deputy Leader since 2011, he has earned widespread recognition Borough-wide as being Bromley's Environmental Services champion, in particular for being the driving force behind the Council's nationally leading 'Street Friends', 'Snow Friends' and 'Friends of Parks' initiatives. He has been responsible for piloting Bromley to the top of London's recycling tables, also for helping to secure a change in funding arrangements to Freedom Passes which save the Borough over £5m annually.

In 2017 Colin was appointed Leader of Bromley Council.

A die-hard defender of the Borough's Green Belt, Colin also continues to lead the call locally for similar reductions to be made to the EU's budget, to match those being made across Local Government.

Colin serves as a School Governor at St George's Primary School.
