They love their local area and are working hard to make sure your voice is heard on the issues that are close to your heart. Meet them below!


 Borough Councillors



 Peter Morson

Pete has been your local Borough and Parish Councillor for over 30 years. He was the youngest Borough and Parish Councillor when he first decided to stand for the Dordon Ward. He was also the youngest Mayor for North Warwickshire in 1993. Peter has a wealth of experience at County, Borough and Parish levels and has been instrumental in the total reconstruction of Dordon village.

He has lived in Dordon all his life and his one true passion is for serving the village he loves. When you ask “who is my councillor,” in Dordon Parish, Peter Morson is rightly the first name that springs to mind.


 Jacky Chambers

Jacky and her family lived in Dordon for 30 years until seven years ago, when their home was demolished to make way for the Birch Coppice development. She now lives in Baxterley, with her husband Gavin Gordon who was an Accident and Emergency consultant at the George Eliot hospital.

Jacky is a medically qualified public health doctor who once she retired stood and was elected as your Labour Borough Councillor in 2015. In the past, she was also Chair of School Governors at Dordon Primary School and fought successfully with other parents to keep the school open.

Over the last 4 years, Jacky has been a strong voice for local people campaigning with the Stop the Build Action group to try and change the plan to build thousands of houses on the countryside, which surrounds the village. She knows from personal experience, what happens when green fields, woodland and bluebells disappear under concrete.
