Alexa was born in 1969 and has lived in Bromley all her life. She was educated in Bromley and holds degrees from the University of East Anglia and University College London. A qualified librarian, Alexa works as a Business Information Executive at the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the City of London.
She has represented Bromley Common & Keston Ward since 1994. She is well known locally and has a reputation for getting things done.
Her main interests are planning, the environment and policing. She strongly believes that Green Belt and other designated land must be protected from built development, and that Councils should have more power to resist housing on such sites. She wants all residents to be able to live in a clean, safe environment with visible police patrols.
As a daily commuter into central London, Alexa believes that reliable, clean and safe public transport is essential, both for the benefit of individuals and the wider economy.
Alexa currently chairs the Public Protection & Safety Policy Development and Scrutiny Committee and Plans 1 Sub-Committee on Bromley Council. She also sits on Plans 3 Sub-Committee, Development Control Committee, Renewal and Recreation Policy Development and Scrutiny Committee and Executive & Resources Policy Development and Scrutiny Committee. She is also a long-standing Council representative to Bromley Arts Council, which supports all kinds of arts in the London Borough of Bromley. More recently, Alexa has been appointed to as a Governor to the Bromley Adult Education College Governing Body.
Outside of politics, Alexa is a keen traveller and has visited many countries, including Arctic Norway, Greenland and Iceland. When time allows, Alexa participates in classes in the Borough’s excellent Mytime Active sports centres. She is a member of the Royal Society of St George, a non-political society for all people who share a love of England and all things English. Alexa also enjoys team quizzes and is very competitive!
Alexa says: “It is a privilege to represent one of the largest and most socially diverse Wards in Bromley Borough. I want to be able to make life better for local people through practical, value-for-money policies. We are living through difficult times economically and socially, but I will always seek to do my best for residents.”
