Paul Hanson Graham

Hampreston & Longham Ward

I live in Bournemouth with my wife and three children, we grew up here and attended the local schools and colleges.
My varied working life has included a career in Sales and Marketing, restoring and supervising my own building projects to managing my Vintage wedding car hire company.

I am a Eurosceptic and believe that Britain’s future is best served outside the EU.

I have a keen interest in countryside and wildlife, old cars, photography and politics.

Hampreston village is a lovely village and I believe that its unique individuality needs to be preserved.
This is my second term as a Longham and Hampreston Councillor.

I was elected unopposed in 2015.
During that term I became heavily involved in campaigning to stop unwanted development in Longham.
I pledged to keep the countryside, greenbelt and wildlife protected around Longham & Hampreston as well as opposing unwanted development.

I Campaigned with the local residents to keep the amenities that are vital for the economy of Longham.

I served as Chairman for 2 years on the Planning Committee where comments were made for recommendation to EDDC.
I helped to protect the natural environment.
I started an ecological project to give protected species a better chance to survive.
Details can be found on the Ferndown Town Council Website.

My second term started in May 2019. I was delighted to be elected by the residents for a further term.
Large parts of Longham and Hampreston are made up of countryside and our countryside and green belt needs protection.
I will endeavour to: Say yes to more trees, green spaces and to keep play areas open in the Casterbridge area, these are vital for the health and wellbeing of our children.
Protect Ferndowns Ecology and conserve Hampreston and Longham's heritage assets.
Reduce the gridlock along Ringwood Rd.

I am Chairman of the newly formed Natural Environment committee.
I look forward to developing this role for the benefit of Ferndown wildlife and ecological issues for the future.
