Alan Hall has a wealth of experience in local government and the NHS having helped pioneer major community projects attracting significant funds to benefit residents in housing and health.

Alan, a councillor for Bellingham Ward since 2006 said: “I am ambitious for Lewisham residents in their work and their community and do not believe that we have to accept austerity or second rate services as the norm. It actually is possible to change things for the better.”


“I was born and grew up in Lewisham, I attended Lewisham schools and as a lifelong resident I am always ready to keep on pressing for the best in investment, jobs and services for Lewisham people”


Alan, 54, is a resolute decision-maker and experienced in both wielding influence and holding powerful people to account and he has moulded the pioneering scrutiny function in Lewisham’s mayoral system created 16 years ago.
