Ken Gulati (Banstead, Woodmansterne & Chipstead)

Ken Gulati has lived in the area for most of his adult life. He is married with grown-up children and grandchildren. He runs his own practice locally as a legal aid solicitor and advocate. Professionally he has a close independent knowledge of the work of social services.

Ken has been honoured to serve as your County Councillor for the last four years taking a special interest in social services and environmental matters. Previously he served for 17 years on the local Borough Council where he was chairman of the Housing and General Purposes committees and Mayor of the Borough.

Ken is active locally working with The Rose Homes for the elderly and takes a close interest in young people. He has helped local scouts and guides, Banstead Youth Centre, Banstead library, Cherish Chipstead, The Banstead Country Fair and St Peter’s Church amongst others. He has organised the resolution of local wet spot problems.

Ken says: “the next four years will mark a watershed for the County Council and for our division in particular. The financing of adult social care has reached crisis point; the organisation of education is in rapid change nationally; consideration is to be given to the redevelopment of The Horseshoe; Surrey’s roads and pavements, although improved as a result of the Project Horizon initiative, continue to need attention and traffic problems must be tackled. In all these matters it is essential that local people be closely involved.

“I will strive to see that meaningful consultations take place and that improvements continue to be made to our pavements and roads.

“I hope you will give me your support on 4 May so that together we can face the future and the complex decisions which will need to be made.”
