Colin Smith

Colin has lived in Bromley since 1963.

Married for 35 years to a former Health professional, Colin was first elected to the Council in 2002 and has served Bickley residents since 2010.

Appointed Deputy Council Leader in 2011, Colin earned widespread recognition Borough-wide as 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' initiative, as well for the implementation of the Council’s ‘Fix my Street’ street fault reporting service.

He has been responsible for piloting Bromley to the top of London's recycling tables and also introduced the Borough’s increasingly popular Green Garden Waste Bin collection service, which also helps to reduce demand on the numbers attending  Waldo Road tip.

At London level, Colin also represented Bromley in negotiations concerning the future allocation of Freedom Pass costs, which has saved the Borough ~£5m annually since 2012.

Appointed Leader of Bromley Council in 2017, Colin remains a staunch defender of the Borough's Green Belt and also remains proud to continue serving as a School Governor at St George's Primary School.
