Councillor David Barrie
All about me
I've lived in New Hall for most of my life. I always wanted to be a councillor for my area - being involved in politics since 1974 - and am proud to have achieved this ambition.
Away from the council I run a small service company providing consultancy services for insurance companies - and have done now for over a decade. Dealing with insurance documents and jargon has been a good preparation for the council too.

How to Contact Me
You can visit me at the advice surgeries below or contact me by telephone or email.
Advice surgeries are where you are able to visit your local Councillor for your Ward, with any issues or concerns that you have, please check who your local Councillor is before attending the advice surgery.
Councillors will always try to attend their advice surgeries; however there may be times, when an advice surgery has to be cancelled or changed at short notice. There is no legal requirement for Councillors to keep the advice surgery open for the full time.
Myself and Councillor Ken Wood are pleased to announce that our Advice Surgeries will be at St Johns Church Walmley, 10 Walmley Road, Walmley, Sutton Coldfield, B76 1QN, on the following dates at 10:30am:-
Saturday 4th November and Saturday 9th December 2023
