Cllr Garry LeCount

An experienced entrepreneur in the media industry, Garry has been a senior executive for companies including EMI and Carlton TV and ITV. He is one of the two Elsenham and Henham district councillors and has served on Henham parish council for the last four years. He has lived in Henham for 36 years.

In 2018 he voted to submit the Uttlesford Local Plan to Government, to stop uncontrolled additional housing and expansion in Henham, Elsenham and the rest of the district.

“In 2017 you trusted Petrina Lees and I with your district council vote. Since then we’ve worked as a team to protect and enhance village life. We’ve dealt with many local issues, such as the road resurfacing outside the Elsenham shops, travellers, railway crossings and speeding.

Importantly through R4U we’ve been given a position on the UDC Local Plan working group which has finally given residents a seat at the table to protect our villages from unsustainable mass development.

Unlike candidates from national parties, we only have one boss, our fellow residents. In May please support us so we can continue to work for you over the next four years.” Garry LeCount

Garry LeCount is an experienced entrepreneur in the media industry, and has been a senior executive for companies including EMI and Carlton TV and ITV. He and his wife have lived in Henham for 36 years.

He is one of the two Elsenham and Henham district councillors and has served on Henham parish council for the last four years. At Uttlesford District Council he is a member of the Scrutiny committee that brings to account the Councils decisions that fall below the standards that residents expect.

At Henham Parish Council his responsibilities include highways, footpaths, web site and a new local information brochure. He was instrumental in closing a dangerous railway pedestrian crossing in Henham and as a district councillor in the resurfacing of the road outside the shops in Elsenham. He works to continue to bring positive changes to local issues by driving them through UDC and ECC.

Elsewhere in the ward he serves as a committee member on the PPG (Patient Participation Group) at Elsenham Surgery.

Garry is very concerned about unsustainable mass-homebuilding in the villages. In 2018 he voted to submit the Uttlesford Local Plan to Government, to stop uncontrolled additional housing and expansion in Henham, Elsenham and the rest of the district.

Outside of the village he has built a successful career as a serial managing director and senior executive in the music and video industry, with leadership roles in companies such as EMI and Carlton TV and ITV. He currently works as Financial Director for his son building a group of successful media companies.

He has a daughter with two children, and when not working he enjoys golf, music history, and being with his young grandchildren.
