Cllr Gareth Hopkinson (Conservative)
- 130 Snape Hill Crescent

My name is Gareth Hopkinson. As a child I was fortunate enough to attend Dronfield Infants and Junior Schools and then The Gosforth School and Dronfield Henry Fanshawe before graduating in Economics & Finance at York University, by trade I work as a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor at a Chesterfield based firm I co own. I currently live on Snape Hill Crescent.
I had the privilege of being elected to serve the town I grew up in and love in the May 2015 elections. As chairman of the Budget Committee I promise you I will constantly strive to ensure Dronfield Town Council obtains value for money for Council Tax payers, I have also recently been appointed on to the Properties Advisory Committee where I will also be focussing on financial responsibility.
I am proud to be a member of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee as I passionately believe that as well as being surrounded by green belt Dronfield has its own unique character and identity and that as a council we have a duty to the town and future generations to protect the green belt and fiercely oppose any plans (such as merging with Sheffield) that involve the loss of this character and identity.
I represent Dronfield Town Council on the Joint Burial Committee which I am deputy chair of and in December 2015 was elected to serve Coal Aston as a District Councillor. As a district councillor I serve on the Audit & Corporate Governance scrutiny which has the responsibility of holding officers of the council to account for their management of the councils finances.
Please email me if there is anything I can do for you or you have any suggestions on how we could make this beautiful town of ours even better.
