Councillor for Yate North ward

Ben Nutland

Tel: 07596 338 096


Facebook: Focus on Sodbury, Yate and Dodington

Ben is in his early 30s, and was born in Yate and has lived in the town his entire life. He attended Brimsham Green School.  He works locally in the hospitality industry alongside his volunteering in the community. He stepped up to help our community as a volunteer in his 20’s and joined the Focus Team because “ since I was a child, I had seen that it was the Focus Team who get things done round here and I wanted to help.  Residents elected him to Yate Town Council and South Gloucestershire.  He is current deputy Mayor of Yate and Shadow Health Lead on South Gloucestershire.

As soon as Ben joined the town council just 6 years ago, he got involved in the Lib Dem ‘ Lets Get Yate Moving’ project, campaigning for better public transport, safer roads, pavements and cycleways. From campaigning successfully to stop the flooding on Greenways Rd to successfully fighting to get our bus back on Wellington Rd he has shown we can win by persevering.   Now he’s at the front of our campaign on potholes – including taking plastic ducks out to highlight the scale of the problem. Sorting out our traffic and transport problems – by getting South Glos to implement our Lets Get Yate Moving plan has to be top priority. 

His current roles include representing this area on the Fire Authority, ensuring we continue to keep our fire station. When local groups want campaign help, Ben is there, whether it is Family Food 4 Free or helping run the Campaign to save our Chipping Sodbury Street Marshalls.
