Giles McNeill

District Councillor for the Nettleham Ward • Association Secretary • Secretary & Treasurer, Coffee Club

Giles has lived in Nettleham for over a quarter of a century and attended local schools including De Aston Sixth Form at Market Rasen. Giles read for his undergraduate degree at the University of Hull and graduated in July 2004.

Giles has a track record to be proud of working hard within the local community. Giles has been an active member of Nettleham Parish Council since 2006, and has been involved on the Planning Committee and Mulsanne Park Users Committee of which he was Chairman. In that time, in partnership with Nettleham Tennis Club, together they have delivered new Tennis Courts. Giles campaigned against the closure of the Linelands Care Home and continues to seek the return of the Linelands site to use as a care facility for the elderly in our community. He currently serves on the parish council’s Personnel & Standards Committee.

Giles has served as a Governor at Nettleham Infants School where he had particular responsibilities on the Resources Committee. Giles successfully tackled the issue of parking on All Saints Lane, the end of the after-school club, and the transition to academy status during his time as a Governor, which has meant a real improvement for local residents.

Giles was elected to West Lindsey District Council in a by-election in September 2012, becoming the first Conservative to represent the Nettleham Ward since the early 1980s. He was subsequently re-elected in the local elections of May 2015, with an increased majority, topping the poll.

Giles serves on the Planning Committee and the Chief Office Employment Committee. He is also Chairman of the Governance and Audit Committee and a co-convenor of the Editorial Board. In April 2013 Giles was appointed the Conservative Group’s Chief Whip by Cllr. Summers, the Conservative Leader of West Lindsey District Council, a post he retained following the 2015 elections.

In early September 2015 Giles was awarded the position of Chairman of the Association of Public Service Excellence’s (APSE) Commercialisation and Finance Professional Practice Strategic Forum, and subsequently re-elected the following year and in 2017.

Giles works locally for the Gainsborough Constituency Conservative Association, as Organising Secretary and for Sir Edward Leigh, Member of Parliament for the Gainsborough Constituency, as Constituency Communications Manager. Professionally since his graduation, Giles has worked most notably at the Environment Agency, Lincolnshire & Rutland Education and Business Partnership (EBP) and the Lincolnshire Association for the Care of the Elderly.
