Roger Oakley


Councillor for Worthing East


26 Coombe Rise, Worthing, BN14 0ED


Phone: 01903 874138


E Mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


Roger Oakley has lived and worked in Sussex for about 40 years and served the residents of Worthing as a Worthing Borough Councillor for the last six years. He was a police officer for 30 years and for 15 of those years he was employed at Worthing. At the moment, Roger works for Network Rail though he plans to retire from full time employment this summer in order to concentrate on his public duties as councillor.

He is a very active councillor locally and regularly responds to residents’ problems. He encourages and supports self-help groups and is a trustee of the local Dial-a-ride. Recently he has facilitated the setting up of a self-help group of Ham Road residents who were dissatisfied with the results of the CPZ extension. He has encouraged a group called Skip; Selden Kids in Play, who are hoping to set up a new playground for local children. He turned out during the floods last summer to make sure local residents had the support from the local services that they needed.

Roger Oakley will seek to highlight the needs of East Worthing, which in his view have been neglected for many years. One of many local issues is parking enforcement; the CPZ. He will continue to support the local residents in promoting their views, which many think have been ignored. As a Worthing Borough Councillor Roger has engaged with this issue but his efforts have been restricted because it is a highways issue and thus controlled by West Sussex County Council.

Roger’s record of accomplishment is proven. Ask those residents who know him. He will always respond to a request for help and will answer enquiries honestly.

Appointed to Environmental & Community Services Select Committee in May 2013
