|Address||4 Nicholas Close,
Ashleigh has lived in Maidstone all his life. He was born in Fant Lane maternity hospital in 1966 and later attended Oldborough Manor secondary school.
Working as a professional taxi and private hire driver he has, for the past 10 years, specialised in conveying people with disabilities and also children and adults with autism.
He is a member of the board of management for a housing co-operative which, he says, is a particularly satisfying and enjoyable role as it involves him in the day to day running of the estate where he has lived for the past 25 years.
Elected as a Borough councillor for Heath Ward in 2018, Ashleigh currently sits on the Planning committee and also on the Joint Transportation Board where KCC and MBC councillors consider a wide range of Highway issues.
His experience as a professional driver has provided Ashleigh with a detailed insight into the transport network and his housing experience has given him an in-depth knowledge of social housing both of which enable him to work sympathetically and effectively on residents’ behalf.
