Ashley and his family continue to live in the Chetwood and Collingwood ward, have been involved in local Church leadership and supported various charities over the years including as a Trustee and former Chairman of Chelmsford Citizens Advice and has also worked to develop youth clubs in the town.

He has served the Town as a Town Councillor for 16 years and almost 12 years as a local Conservative Councillor for Chelmsford City Council.  He has provided support to many local people through Advice Surgeries both directly and alongside Sir John Whittingdale at Club Woodham over the years and hopes with your support to continue to serve our local people and the interests for our Town.

Ashley previously served as a Police Officer and has a keen interest in keeping our streets safe and our town in a good clean condition for the general wellbeing of all.

In recent years he had discussed with local Police Chiefs and the Police Crime and Fire Commissioner and encouraged a further police presence around our town especially in relation to County lines and drug related crimes and seeks to improve this further over the coming years.

Ashley was re-elected to represent the residents of Chetwood & Collingwood Ward at Chelmsford City Council in the May 2023 Local Elections.
