Cllr. Julie Simpson


I am married with 4 children and 8 grandchildren and have lived in the centre of Sissinghurst for nearly 40 years. Twenty years ago, I started a business in Cranbrook which publishes Wealden Times and Surrey Homes magazines as well as running Wealden Times Fairs. I’ve recently retired from the day-to-day running of the business to become more involved in my community.

I’m a trustee and volunteer with Cranbrook & District Age Concern and a passionate believer that a thriving local community with a commitment to supporting everyone in it should be at the heart of everything that we do.

I feel very strongly that protecting our countryside and building sustainable, affordable, low-impact housing should be at the top of the planning agenda and that the environment and sustainability should be central to all our decisions
