Cllr James Hallam

James has been the Deputy Leader at Harborough District Council since May 2019.

James said, "I am a married father of two sons, and live and work on our family farm, alongside running a gardening business. I am in and around the Great Glen ward on a daily basis and always have time to discuss any current issues with local residents.

I take a great interest in the countryside, in keeping the Glen ward protected from unsustainable development and have spoken on many occasions in support of my constituents to keep the area a pleasant one in which to live.

I also enjoy watching sport, particularly watching my two sons playing rugby at Market Harborough RFC.

Originally elected in 2011, I have served on many committees, including the Grants Committee for the last 5 years, giving money out to deserving causes within the community.  I was asked to go onto the Executive in 2013, and have had three portfolios – Sport, Health and Wellbeing, Corporate Services and I am currently responsible for Finance and Assets, particularly setting the budget.  I was instrumental in maintaining the Council Tax at the same level as it was in 2011 which, allowing for inflation, represents an 18% reduction in real terms."
