Cllr Louise Hinks

First elected in May 2019

I am a new member of the Council (2019) and was motivated to stand by my desire to make sure Wimborne Minster continues to be a great place to live, work and bring up a family.

Our town is about to enter a significant period of change; including the creation of a new, unitary authority and substantial housing development.  I believe that the views of residents should be at the forefront of all council decision-making.

As a resident of the town for the past 30 years I am keen to champion and protect Wimborne’s many excellent facilities, societies and organisations. Open spaces such as Redcotts Recreation Ground, Willow Walk and Leigh Park make the town a great place for children and young people. Having brought up my family in the town I am committed to protecting these for future generations.

I have extensive organisational and planning experience from my regular job as the customer account manager of a local engineering firm. I hope to use these skills to support the Council’s work with the various organisations supported by the Council.

If you have any thoughts, concerns or ideas for the Town then do email me.
