Cllr Danny Thorpe, London Councils Member

Cllr Danny Thorpe became Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich on 23 May 2018, having been a councillor in Greenwich since July 2004 and Deputy Leader from 2016 to 2018. Cllr Thorpe represents the Shooters Hill ward and his portfolio has previously included regeneration, transport and sustainability.

Education has had a profound impact on Cllr Thorpe’s life and his politics. His passion for education took him back to the classroom as a school teacher, giving him the opportunity to support children in the way that he was supported through his own education. Whilst his career has spanned various sectors, every role has been about providing opportunities for others and has focused on community and youth work.

Councillor Thorpe grew up in the Royal Borough of Greenwich; a place he feels has given him so many opportunities. His key priorities include equality, sustainability, housing, education and the economy.
