Lowestoft Green Councillors

Elise Youngman

Green Party Councillor representing the Elm Tree ward.

I was born in Norwich and moved here with my parents in 2003 and have now lived in Lowestoft for 19 years and would not want to live anywhere else. I live in the St Margarets East Ward with my husband and 3 children who attend local schools within the ward. I am currently a full-time mum and with my spare time I like to walk around Lowestoft and help friends and family.

I love the town that I have brought my family up in and I wouldn't change it for the world. Lowestoft deserves a clear vision for its future and the public should be consulted every step of the way to ensure that it is improved for the benefit of the whole community.

Lowestoft Greens group covers a huge area of not only Lowestoft town (population approx 50,000) but also the surrounding areas from Pakefield, Kirkley, Oulton Broad, Kessingland, Gunton and Carlton Colville (a total of around 73,000).

In June 2019 the two Green Town Councillors including Peter Lang, initiated a motion to Lowestoft town Council to declare a Climate Emergency. This got passed by the Council and the Town council became the first town council in Suffolk to declare an emergency.

Although the Lowestoft Green movement is still fairly new it had a previous history of activity in the town, and it has flourished in the last 3 years.
