About Councillors Isabel, Andrew and Jake

Carshalton Central has elected local Liberal Democrat councillors in varying numbers since 1986 (although the first one was originally elected as Lib/SDP Alliance).

“FOCUS” is our regular newsletter to all residents for the last 31 years delivered by dedicated volunteers and councillors FREE to all households about every 2-3 months, ever since 1985.

As Liberal Democrats we believe that the work of politicians should ALWAYS be accountable, open and transparent. We work for YOU! By detailing some of the work we are engaged with we can be accountable to the residents of Carshalton Central ward who voted us to be their representatives on Sutton Council.

Carshalton Central ward which we represent consists of parts of both the Carshalton SM5 and Sutton SM1 postal districts. Carshalton Central ward is bounded by Brookfield Avenue, West Street down to the Colston Avenue roundabout and the railway line (that runs between Carshalton and Hackbridge Stations) to the north, The Grove Park, Rotherfield Road, and Woodstock Road to the east, Grosvenor Avenue, Gordon Road and Harrow Road to the south, and King’s Lane, Sutton Grove, Harold Road and Florian Avenue to the west.

Councillor Jake Short
Email: jake.short@sutton.gov.uk

Jake has lived in the borough all his life. He went to school at Carshalton Boys Sports College, and saw first hand the transformative effect Sutton’s excellent teachers can have. At university, he studied History and International Relations, with a particular interest in ‘hidden histories’, of ordinary people, giving him a particular appreciation for the importance of our local heritage sites and historic buildings, which offer a window into Carshalton’s past. His main interests are improving local transport, local history, improving mental health services and education.

As your councillors, we deliver regular FOCUS Newsletters throughout Carshalton Central ward every two or three months with the very welcome help of a network of volunteers, as the Lib Dem Team have done continuously for over 31 years. We always welcome volunteer help with this immense task. We will work hard for our area all year round and we welcome phone calls during normal hours whenever possible, please.
