Colin Smith - Chairman

Portfolio: Finance

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 Barnes

Nick Barnes - Vice Chairman

Portfolio: Website

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.
