Lauren Kendall is co-opted to Holywood and Clandeboye seat on Ards and North Down Council

The announcement comes following the news that Rachel Woods would resign from the council to take up a new job.

The Green Party has announced that Lauren Kendall will take their currently vacant seat on Ards and North Down Borough Council, as councillor for Holywood and Clandeboye.

This comes following the news last week that Rachel Woods would step down from the position, as she takes up a new job outside of politics.

The appointment was confirmed by the Chief Electoral Officer for Northern Ireland, Dr David Marshall.

“I am pleased and privileged to rejoin a hardworking team of Greens in North Down. I am deeply grateful to Rachel for her years of dedication to the community, both as MLA and Councillor, and hope to follow Rachel’s lead carrying on her brilliant work for Holywood and Clandeboye.

“I am committed to a cleaner, greener, fairer society for all. I live in a wonderful community here in Holywood and our local government needs to work hard for local people. We must strive to make our communities sustainable, inclusive and representative of all. The community’s views and voices must be at the heart of decision-making.

“As a Green, I will continue to promote the positive benefits of preserving our natural environment and green spaces, particularly the importance of taking urgent action to combat climate breakdown.”

– Cllr Lauren Kendall

Lauren Kendall lives in Holywood, and has previously worked as a law searcher, and has spent most of her career working in the community and charity sector in the areas of justice, disability and environment.
