Derek Scudder (FILEminimizer)Keith Crout…01923 241507…keith.crout@watford.gov.uk

I have been a councillor in Watford for 14 years after a career in Local Government as a press officer and 25 years in journalism.

I am currently in the Mayor’s cabinet and my portfolio gives me responsibility for housing, customer care, play and environment services.

Away from the Cabinet I serve on the Licensing Committee which looks at the running of pubs and nightclubs and shops selling alcohol within the town and work closely with the police to ensure the night time economy isn’t too disruptive.

As a member of the Cabinet I help to make the major decisions for the town such as the new Health Campus, the development of our shopping centres, improving our parks, tackling anti social behaviour, improving the town centre and tackling homelessness to name but a few.

Away from the council I enjoy creative writing, tracing family history, the countryside, fine dining) and membership of Cassiobury Tennis Club.
