Nottingham City Council is deeply saddened to announce that long-serving councillor Alan Clark passed away in the early hours of this morning (26th July 2017).

Councillor Clark, aged 61, was elected to Nottingham City Council as a Labour Councillor in 1988 representing the Byron Ward until 2003 and the Bulwell Forest Ward, from 2003 until the present, alongside his wife, Councillor Eunice Campbell.

Councillor Clark held a number of senior positions during his 29 years of service to Nottingham City Council including the role as Portfolio Holder for Energy and Sustainability since 2011. He took a leading role in making Nottingham one of the UK’s greenest cities, including developing the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change, fitting thousands of homes with solar panels and connecting thousands of homes and businesses to the district heating system, as well as setting up Robin Hood Energy, the UK’s first council-owned  energy company.

City Council Leader Councillor Jon Collins says:

“This is very sad news indeed. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and worked with him. He worked tirelessly for his local community and played a major role in many of the important decisions for our city over the years.

“Alan has been a great friend and colleague to me through his years on the Council. My thoughts and condolences are with Eunice at this sad time.”
