Parish Councillor for Downend Ward, Downend and Bromley Heath Parish Council, and Candidate for the Frenchay and Downend by-election
Tel: 07901 621 632
Raj is a well known parish councillor and local businessman. His convenience store on Quaker's Road is an important community hub for Bromley Heath, Downend and Frenchay.
Having originally trained as a Civil Engineer, Raj has found his knowledge especially useful in contributing to planning and financial issues considered by Downend and Bromley Heath Parish Council. Now that his children – who attended local schools – are older, Raj wants to use his experience to serve the wider community on South Gloucestershire Council.
Up until recently he has worked outside party politics, but has now joined the Liberal Democrat team to work more effectively for local residents. For example, he has recently been working with other local activists to campaign for Covid-safe pedestrian crossings in Downend, and to survey residents about their experiences during the Covid-19 crisis and the way forward.
