Benjamin Wear

District Councillor for Leatherhead North

Benjamin is a business owner, in the property industry running from his busy office in Surbiton. He previously managed a successful office in Leatherhead and has lived in the town for many years giving him a huge knowledge of the area.

Originally from South Africa he lives with his partner in Leatherhead and enjoys having the beautiful countryside of Mole Valley on his doorstep where he enjoys long walks along the river and into the valley. However, he is deeply concerned about sewage that is released into our local river and is adamant to protect the Green Belt for future generations.

Being in the property world means he has a keen interest in the development of the town centre, and that it provides good quality affordable housing as well as creating a central hub for retail and entrainment to pull interest from the wider area. As a business owner Benjamin believes it's critical the redevelopment creates opportunities for small business to thrive and that the business community is supported to do so.

He sees it as essential that all residents are represented and supported in all decisions made, this includes special education provision, disabled access, and supporting an aging population.

When not working Benjamin loves to learn about other cultures, having travelled to places across Southern Africa, Asia, and the Americas, including Namibia, Japan, and Vietnam.
