Cllr Lance Millane

I have lived in Runwell since 1999 and has been a long established Ward Councillor for Runwell & Rettendon.

First elected to Chelmsford Borough (now City) Council in 2007, I immediately became a member of the Planning Committee. I has also spent time on the Audit & DPC committees. I am currently the Chairman of the City Council’s Licensing & Regulatory Committee, a post I have held for some years and still serves on Planning.

I began my career as a Draughtsman. I spent some 25 years working in the fashion industry as a Sales Director & owned my own company. I have also spent over 16 years working for a well established Property and Estate company. I have travelled on business throughout Europe, Turkey and Hong Kong where he gained a wealth of experience working with different people and cultures.

My hobbies include keeping fit, football, reading, dogs, music, travel, food and wine

During my time as a Ward Councillor I have gained much local knowledge of Runwell, Rettendon and the surrounding areas and am passionate about local issues and committed to positive change that will benefit the community. With my colleague Ray Ride, I am proud to have achieved many positive outcomes for local residents & continue to work energetically for the local community.
