John McNeill

District Councillor for the Market Rasen Ward

John has recently moved with his wife, Alice and son, William, to Middle Rasen from Market Rasen where they had lived for more than a decade.  John attended local schools including De Aston School Sixth Form at Market Rasen before reading for his undergraduate degree at the University of Hull where he graduated in July 2003.

John was elected to West Lindsey District Council in the May 2015 election. He was subsequently re-election in May 2019. He serves on the Corporate Policy & Resources Committee and the Governance & Audit Committee. He is also one of the Vice-Chairmen of the Prosperous Communities Committee, on which he also serves. John has been an active member of the Community Grants Panel, awarding significant grants across the district to benefit local communities.

John has spent his time at West Lindsey District Council championing the cause of Market Rasen town and the villages of the ward, to ensure a reasonable distribution of resources across the district.  John, with his fellow ward-Councillors and other groups, effectively campaigned to enable two-hours’ free car parking in Market Rasen following the introduction of charging in 2016.  He has also been a strong supporter for the new leisure facility to replace the current facilities at De Aston School, and hopes that a swimming pool will be added to the facilities when the viability and affordability of such a project is demonstrated.  John was also instrumental at securing a £200K package in 2018 from West Lindsey District Council for Market Rasen Town Council, the only council outside Gainsborough to receive such assistance.

John has a track record to be proud of working hard within the local community. John is currently a Trustee of Middle Rasen Nursery, where he is the Treasurer and (Acting) Secretary, and the Independent Examiner of Accounts of St Thomas’ Church, Market Rasen.  John was an active member of Market Rasen Town Council from 2014 until 2017. In that time, in partnership with the Mayor and other Town Councillors, John delivered improved facilities at all the parks within Market Rasen and promoted the revival of the Festival Hall, leading to exciting redevelopment plans.

Before becoming a househusband to raise his son, John most recently worked as a consultant for the Diocese of Lincoln.  Previously John had worked as a Compliance Manager in healthcare recruitment, at De Aston School as a Science Technician and as a compliance professional for an Insurance Broker in Lincoln, where he obtained various professional qualifications, including from the Chartered Insurance Institute.
