Cllr Edward Waite

Published: 08 March 2022

Cllr Edward Waite was brought up in Sevenoaks, and he represented the area of our town in which his family still live, Eastern Ward.

He was elected to Sevenoaks Town Council in May 2015, and served on most of its committees, as well as on the Stag Trustee Board. His legal training and his experience in a nationally renown Trust gave him a valuable grounding in how publicly accountable organisations should be run.


To his fellow councillors Ed was an unfailing conscientious colleague, clear in his convictions that everyone has the right to be heard. All of us in the Council, members, and officers, knew him as someone determined to do his best for Sevenoaks, a really good councillor, modest, always considerate and a lovely person to know.

Our thoughts are with his family, and we will all miss him. Sevenoaks has lost, far too early, someone who wanted to make a real difference.
