Lewis Strange

County Councillor for the Market Rasen Wolds Division • District Councillor for the Kelsey Wold Ward

Lewis has worked hard for sixteen years representing the Hemswell, Middle Rasen and Waddingham & Spital wards which formed the Ancholme Cliff Division at County hall. In 2017, following boundary changes, he was elected to the new MArket Rasen Wolds division, covering the Middle Rasen, Waddingham & Spital and the Market Rasen wards.

Lewis is an ex- farmer with an intense desire to represent the needs of rural people, as I have always done at County Hall.  I serve on the Lincolnshire Wolds advisory committee-something close to my heart. I am a family man with a very supportive partner, a Son who teaches locally and a Daughter, two grandsons and a husband, who farm livestock near Lincoln.

Previously He led the team, for the energy from waste plant and the two new recycling sites at, The Rasens and Gainsborough. He has campaigned successfully, against the spread of large wind turbines in and around the Hemswell cliff area, and also the Wolds, where I am involved with the Lincolnshire Wolds advisory committee-something very close to my heart.

During the last four years I have led the Flood and drainage and environmental scrutiny committees at County Hall. I have also represented Lincolnshire on the rural services SPARSE committee in London, where we have secured extra money for the county.

Lewis is Chairman of the Definitive Map & Statement of Public Rights of Way Sub-Committee.
