Colin's principal portfolio is Finance. As Chairman he has no planning application areas.
Whilst completing an Engineering career, Colin moved to the village 14 years ago together with his wife and family. Widely travelled and experienced in an extensive range of projects, from houses to the largest of industrial sites, all of which involved active interfacing with Planning Departments, although in a number of different countries. After an active life to date and with retirement beckoning, Colin is now looking to become more involved and occupied with the local area, which is seen as his home.
Nick's principal portfolio is the web site, along with related technology used to help run the Council. He represents the Parish Council on the Heart of Streatley Charitable Trust. He is the lead councillor for planning applications in Wallingford Road and Reading Road.
Nick has lived in the village for 20 years and worked locally for most of them. Having felt like the right time to take a more active part in what goes on in the village, he joined the Parish Council in 2014. His father was mayor for a small town in Devon, and told him that being on a parish council would be 'interesting'. He trained as a mechanical engineer in London, but decided pretty quickly that, if he couldn't build steam trains, then computers were more his thing.
He has been a volunteer for the Thames Rescue service for over 15 years, regularly keeping pleasure boats out of the way of the G&S regatta and similar events in the local area.
Jeremy joined the Parish Council in 2014, and his portfolio is currently Planning. On behalf of the Parish Council he liaises with St Mary's Church and attends the quarterly Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) meetings.
Jeremy moved to Streatley in 2010 and lives in Rectory Road. During his career Jeremy worked in human resources and office management in UK and Europe; since retirement in 2011 he has become involved with local activities including the Goring Gap News and volunteering at the Q1 Hub in Goring. His main hobbies are cricket, cycling, walking and bridge.
Oscar has lived in Streatley with his family for over 24 years, apart from a few years out studying Product Design at university. He now is working for an electrical manufacturer as a regional sales engineer in the parish and surrounding area.
Oscar joined the Parish Council in December 2022, to help out with and become more involved with village and community life.
Mark's principal portfolio is Environment and Open Spaces. He also represents the Parish Council on the Friends of Streatley Rec. Mark is the lead Councillor for planning applications in Townsend Road and Three Gables Lane, along with Cleeve Court.
Mark is a recent addition to the Parish Council. Mark moved into Streatley in late 2020 with his young family of 2 boys and is passionate about the beauty of our environment and loves the easy access to the "mountain" (for running/hiking) and river (for swimming and sailing). Mark is keen to learn more about the local geography and environment and to contribute to the local community.
Mark is a geologist by background and now is working to accelerate the energy industry to get to "net zero".
Adrian's principal portfolio is to be determined.
An Industrial Economist and qualified Electro-Mechanical Engineer, Adrian pursued an extensive career as a senior leader in international business before founding a Queens Award winning niche technology company in 2000. During recent times he additionally spent considerable time working on a voluntary basis with key business / central & local government partnerships.
Adrian has lived in Streatley with his wife and family for the past 27 years and is a keen river user. He feels strongly that we are custodians of this delightful locale and since retirement is keen to offer support in looking after the village and its surrounding area.
