Howard Eccles BPRCVS Trustee

BPRCVS Trustee appointed by Belmont Community Association

I started my working life as an engineering draftsman with a local engineering company. I remained with them after coming out of my apprenticeship for 17 years then left to buy my own business which was a general store, sweets & tobacconist. I ran this for over 20 years then retired. I was appointed to serve on the Social Security Appeals Board a position I held for 18 years at the same time I served on the Valuation Tribunal Service and held the position of Member and Chairman  for over 25 years.

I was a councillor on Lancashire County Council and Burnley Borough Council for 10 years.

I presently sit as a member of the Independent School Appeals Panel for both admission appeals and also for exclusion appeals I sit on 6 authorities throughout the North West. I was introduced a number of years ago to the C.V.S and was duly appointed as a Trustee.

I have been Chairman of Belmont Community Centre for over 40 years.

I enjoy working with people across all aspects of life.
