Ian Lewis

Councillor for Wallasey Ward
Former councillor for Leasowe & Moreton East (2008-14)

Ian Lewis was elected to Wirral Council in 2016, representing Wallasey Ward, and the seat originally held by respected, well-known former Councillor Kate Wood.  Before that, he was the first-ever Conservative Councillor for Leasowe & Moreton East (2008-12 and 2013-14). 

Ian has lived in Wallasey since 1994 and, before that lived in Meols, after his parents moved from Huyton in 1980. Ian attended Great Meols Primary School, Hilbre High School and then Wirral Met College before joining a Youth Training Scheme with the then Abbey National Building Society.  He went onto work in debt advice and later marketing modern apprenticeships.

Ian has also volunteered with a range of local organisations, including the Leasowe Play Youth & Community Association, and supports the Wallasey Village Library Friends, Wallasey Village People and the Friends of Harrison Park. 

Ian is a former governor on local primary schools and is now a member of the Council's Children's Services Committee. 

Ian's priorities for Wallasey in 2019/20 include:

  • Fight for a fair share of the council's budget to tackle issues such as faulty street lights, pot holes and grass verges
  • Work with community groups, such as Wallasey Village Library Friends and Wallasey Village People
  • Keep in touch with residents with regular newsletters, letters, email bulletins and social media updates
  • Reduce the waiting list for allotment plots by increasing the number of sites locally
