About Me: I have represented Kippington Ward since 2003. I am particularly interested in improving the Town’s facilities and so have supported Sevenoaks Town Council taking over the running of the Stag Theatre, the Wednesday and Saturday markets, and some of the recreation grounds. For the same reasons I have lobbied Sevenoaks District Council to bring Marks & Spencer to Bligh’s and create additional car parking. I grew up locally in Dartford and moved to Sevenoaks in 1980. I am married, with 3 daughters, and take a keen interested in local access for the disabled.

Cllr O Schneider

Non-Pecuniary Declaration

Declaration of Acceptance of Office

Political Party: Conservative

About Me: I was born in Germany but brought up in Kent, which probably explains my taste for Real Ale and Sausages. After several years working as an expatriate, I returned to Kent in in 2002. Sevenoaks is a special place, my home and where I have chosen to raise my young family. My business helps councils and community groups create vibrant communities, and as a Councillor I want to help the community where I live to be vibrant. I am passionate about planning and regeneration where I have vast experience. I am interested in open spaces, local economy, community and keeping Sevenoaks beautiful. In my spare time I am a keen Scuba Diver, fading sportsman, avid gardener, and enthusiastic foodie.
