Former leader made Honorary Alderman

The former leader of Test Valley Borough Council has been made an Honorary Alderman after a decision at full council last week.


Ian Carr MBE was the borough council’s leader for almost 20 years and was twice the mayor, with the end of his most recent term coinciding with his retirement from local government earlier this year.


Mr Carr said: “I am really honoured to have been appointed as an Honorary Alderman and I will be forever grateful. I thoroughly enjoyed my time serving as leader and twice as the mayor of the borough and I am happy to help whenever my assistance may be needed!”


Current leader of the council, Cllr Phil North, said: “Ian has always worked for the benefit of the borough and its residents during his time in local government. I’m certain this will be no different.”
