Stevenage Borough Councillor for Chells Ward

Correspondence address: 2B North Road, Stevenage SG1 4AT


Phone: 07970 900 126

Stephen Booth was elected for the Chells Ward of Stevenage Borough Council in 2019 with a 320 vote majority over Labour’s candidate, a former mayor of Stevenage. He previously served for eight years representing the Longmeadow ward from 1982-1990. 

He is a former chair and governor of Barnwell School. He passionately believes that education should be life-long with wide opportunities for re-training, especially for those made redundant.

On the Borough Council he serves on the Audit, Environment & Economy and Community Select committees.

Stephen retired in 2017 from his publishing and event management business, which focused on the surveying and geographical information sector. During his working life, from which he draws knowledge and experience to apply to his council work, he worked in the construction industry in the UK and abroad before moving exclusively into publishing in the early 1980s.

He is a fellow member of the Royal Geographical Society and maintains a keen interest in both UK and world events as they shape and inform our views through history and geography. When he’s not reading or following a factual TV series (to the annoyance of his wife Sandra!), he enjoys tinkering with classic cars and listening to classical music.
