Claire Malcomson Cabinet Member for Climate Change, has lived in Surrey for many years and been a councillor for the Holmwoods for eight years. Since the Liberal Democrats took over the Administration (2019) she has held a Cabinet post. Claire strives to make all residents feel listened to and works hard to mitigate climate change.

Claire led the Council to declare both a Climate and Ecology Emergency, making sure the council reaches its target to become carbon neutral by 2030. Her ground-breaking Climate Strategy has resulted in the council winning 500K to install air sources heat pumps and LEDs lights on council properties; expanding solar generation, and creating a new procurement plan, making sure the corporations we use have the same ethos. She hopes to introduce solar car canopies in our council car parks and has helped set up ninety EV charging points, being installed this spring. Claire introduced The Community Lottery, which is providing funds to local charities and groups. Its Environment Fund pays planting for well-established saplings across Mole Valley. She's made sure MVDC and Surrey CC mowing regimes have been altered to allow wildflowers and pollinators to thrive.

During the pandemic Claire initiated a Community Garden to help residents' well-being.

She is an enthusiastic member of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Board and Mental Health Board for Surrey and its Borders Partnership. She stands up against sewage in The Mole and extraction of fossil fuels, actively making sure ambitious biodiversity and emissions targets feature on our upcoming Local Plan.
