Councillor Andrew Batson

Responsibilities:  Highways and Footpaths; Parish Assembly; Wetley Moor Committee

I am a retired Chartered Surveyor and a qualified Mine Surveyor. Together with my wife we have raised two children in Bagnall.

I have lived in Bagnall, in the family home, since 1987 when I moved with my employer from my native South Yorkshire to Staffordshire. During my career I specialised in the handling of subsidence claims which originated from many diverse origins. This experience has given me a working knowledge of many aspects of the environment which we live in.

I was co-opted on to the Parish Council in 2008 and have since been re-elected having served as Chairman and Vice Chairman for several years. Amongst other things I organise the monthly walking group in the village.
