Eastleigh's Green Challenges

We are joined by Councillor Keith House from Eastleigh Borough Council. Keith House has been Liberal Democrat Leader of Eastleigh Borough Council in Hampshire since 1994.  He is a member of Hampshire County Council and is the Leader of the Opposition there. On the regional stage, Keith was the Chair of the South East England Regional Assembly and is now a Board member of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) nationally.  He has chaired various Local Government Association bodies and is now a Deputy Chair of the Environment & Housing Board.

At Eastleigh, Keith led the introduction of Local Area Committees with devolved decision-making and budgets, the transfer of assets to Town and Parish Councils and the establishment of new Parish Councils.  He is a passionate advocate of localism and introduced three key priorities for the Council - health, prosperity, and the environment.
