County Councillor Robert Greenland

It is with great sadness that we announce that Councillor Robert Greenland died yesterday (9th August). Bob was elected to Monmouthshire County Council in 2004. He joined Cabinet in 2006 and was appointed Deputy Leader in 2008. Bob was a member of the Welsh Local Government Association Council and represented the Council on various outside bodies including the Cardiff Capital Region. As Deputy Leader, Bob provided formidable leadership that was recognised across Wales and further afield. He was a pivotal figure on all things planning, regeneration, leisure, digital and a progressive Chair of the Education Achievement Service. Passionate about supporting local business and enterprise, Bob led various strategic initiatives including chairing and establishing the Business Resilience Forum when the pandemic hit to support local businesses in the face of the coronavirus crisis. As ward member for Devauden, Bob loved the beauty of the Wye Valley and was dedicated to supporting the local community who live and work in this stunning location. Bob was committed to helping local young people access housing and supported the development of affordable homes. Promoting education and leisure in the County, Bob was instrumental in the build of the new schools in Caldicot and Monmouth, as well as the leisure centre and pool in Monmouth. Sending thoughts to Bob’s wife Scilla, their family and friends. To add a message onto the book of condolences for Cllr Bob Greenland please click on this link: https://bit.ly/3A5FQvN
