Chris Harwood

Councillor (East Looe Ward)

Chris joined the Looe Town Council team in April 2023.  Chris has lived in and around the local area for most of his working life with periods living in both East and West Looe.  Currently he resides in West Looe where he has lived with his wife since 2018.  Before retiring Chris had a full career with the Royal Navy as an Engineer Officer and later worked in industry as the lead manager co-ordinating engineering shore support to meet operational requirements for Navy Destroyers.  With a keen interest in supporting Looe and the community he is eager to bring his knowledge and experience of managing successful outcomes under challenging situations to the greater benefit of the Looe Community.

Chris is very interested in ensuring that the vibrant character of Looe and its heritage is maintained. He strives to obtain the correct balance between the needs of business, residents, and visitors across all ages of our community.  Practical and with a determination to get things done, he is keen to help wherever he can.  Willing to hold public organisations to account for the correct delivery and decisions, with the prime interests of the members of the Looe community always in mind.

Outside of Council responsibilities Chris enjoys his time living in Looe with all the great things that it has to offer.  Keen to travel and explore, particularly the many interesting places that make Cornwall such a wonderful place to live.  Other interests include maritime and steam era heritage of the local area, DIY, gardening and model engineering.
