Prospective Independent Aldermanic Candidate for the The Ward of Walbrook

Working for a city that represents, protects and advocates for the interests of all

Having been raised in East London, and owing my career to the City, it is a great privilege of mine to work to protect the best parts of the City of London, strive to overcome its challenges, and create further opportunities for all who live and work in the area. Now, I want to further commit to the success and prosperity for all who live and work here, as Alderman for the Ward of Walbrook.

Throughout my career I have contributed to London’s community in volunteer roles ranging from the Independent Advisory Group for the City of London Police, the Fundraising Board of the Lord Mayor's Appeal, and the East End Community Foundation, to being a Mental Health First Aider and a Justice of the Peace. Each of these speak to concerns that I am personally passionate about and that I see as inhibiting the quality of life for all in the City. Such concerns include reducing the stigma surrounding mental health problems, alleviating poverty in London, and encouraging businesses of all sizes to work together to help drive collective prosperity.

Alongside my professional experiences in property development, these roles have exposed me to the intricacies of the way the City runs, galvanising my desire to extend my commitment to London’s future, as well as alleviating the problems we currently face. My goal is to seek proactive solutions to everyday concerns for the long term success and enjoyment of London and its community.

Understanding that the role of Alderman is not to be undertaken lightly, and pledging my efforts to the electorate, I have amended my contract of employment to allow me to dedicate my time to you. To meet with you and perform the Aldermanic duties should the opportunity arise by working with the existing team of Common Councillors to listen to your concerns as owners, occupiers, retailers and residents.

If elected, I will strive to progress to become Sheriff and then Lord Mayor, acting as an ambassador for the City of London, Greater London and the UK on the world stage.

Together, let’s make Walbrook relevant for the future.

I am Andrew Heath-Richardson, JP (Justice of the Peace) and I am 55 years old, born and raised in London.
I am a Freeman of the City of London, on the Court of the Worshipful Company of Lightmongers, a Justice of the Peace, Director of the City Property Association, an Ambassador for the East End Community Foundation and a Vice President for The Story of Christmas Appeal.
My career has seen me progress from an indentured apprentice in the electrical industry to a director of development for Canary Wharf Group and I am now at the peak of my career overseeing developments worth

One of my first projects after completing my apprenticeship was to install a Christmas Tree and the associated lights in Guildhall Yard, as well as illuminating the world famous Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square on several occasions,I also worked on projects in Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and other Government buildings.
My career has seen me work predominately in London with several large redevelopment projects in the City of London from Bracken House in the 1980’s to Drapers’ Gardens in the 2000’s and more recently on 
20 Fenchurch Street - The Walkie Talkie.
I have extensive international experience having worked in France, Germany, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.
I am now ready and able to dedicate my time and effort into the important role of local Government in the City of London, and seek support for my election as Alderman in heart of the City.
With my extensive redevelopment and regeneration experience I understand how communities work, and what they need to thrive.
