Former Cabinet Member and Lord Mayor of Westminster, Alan Bradley MA, FIA, has sadly passed away at the weekend.
Mr Alan Bradley MA, FIA, was first elected as a Westminster City Councillor on 4 May 1978 and retired in 2014, having served as a Councillor for 36 years. He represented St George’s ward up to 2002 and then Tachbrook until his retirement. He served as Lord Mayor from 1995 to 1996 and chaired almost all of the City Council’s committees as well as serving as a Cabinet Member. He was conferred with the title of Honorary Alderman in November 2014.
Cllr Ruth Bush, Lord Mayor of Westminster, and a fellow trustee of Westminster Tree Trust, said:
“I greatly respected Alan and was very sad to hear of his death. He was a fine Councillor and Lord Mayor and I send his family my sincere condolences.
“We first worked together many years ago on a Task Group examining the cause of cycle accidents near certain junctions. We discovered that road damage was worse at these locations, and so repairs needed to be made there more often.
“When that began to happen the accidents were reduced. Alan and I frequently congratulated ourselves on actually getting something done!”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alan for his services to Westminster and send our deepest condolences to his friends and family at this very sad time.
