It is with great sadness we share the news of Councillor David Dovey's passing.

David had been poorly for several weeks and yesterday was admitted to hospital, sadly passing away this morning. We offer our deepest heartfelt condolences to Steph and their son Spencer.

David was first elected to the County Council in 2008 and has represented the St Kingsmark ward of Chepstow ever since. He was voted as Chairman of Monmouthshire County Council in May 2013. David was passionate about all aspects of the Council and representing his constituents and until recently, David chaired the strategic transport group on the council and was instrumental in developing the group to address traffic concerns across the county.

David was a lovely man, someone with a wonderful personality and a desire to always do his very best. He was a loyal friend to many, as well as being a committed councillor and will be missed greatly in our chamber and in the wider community.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Steph, Spencer and all the family.
