Cllr Malcom Watson

Malcolm has been married for 49 years and has 2 children and 3 grandchildren and has lived in Essex all his life. He moved to Writtle in 1996 from where he commuted to work in London in Financial Services until early retirement in 2002. He has been an active local volunteer for the Conservative Party since his teen years but only stood for office in 2011 when he was elected as a Chelmsford City Councillor for the Ward of Waterhouse Farm.

Since being first elected nearly 8 years’ ago Malcolm has sat on several Council Committees where he believes his business and financial management background has added to the pool of knowledge available to the Council’s Conservative Administration. He has previously served on the Development Policy, Overview & Scrutiny and Treasury Management committees and is currently a member of Planning Committee and Chairman of the Audit Committee.

Whilst serving as a Ward Member for Waterhouse Farm Malcolm has dealt with a number of planning issues for residents as well as dealing with and solving many issues relating to parking problems throughout the entirety of the Ward.

Due to the retirement at the May 2019 election of one of the current Ward Members for Writtle, Malcolm has been selected to stand as one of the two Conservative candidates who will be offering themselves for election in Writtle. Malcolm believes that due to his previous 8 years’ experience as a City Councillor, he is well qualified to represent the electorate of Writtle on the City Council for the next four years.
