Councillor Toby Lee was born in Solihull but moved to the Stratford-on-Avon district at the age of 5, later attending Kineton High School. Having moved back to the area from Edinburgh in 2005 following university and the early part of his working life, Toby has now been a Stratford resident for over 13 years.
Toby was appointed to the Town Council in May 2019 and serves on the Finance & Scrutiny Committee, Mayoral, Civic Ceremonial & Events Committee, and the Planning Consultative Committee. He is also a member of one of the sub-groups.
Toby works on the development and construction of offshore wind projects, having started a career in renewable energy after completing his MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology at Loughborough University in 2001. Currently he is working on closing out the construction of the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, which is located 8 miles off the Sussex coastline near to Brighton. As well as being technically minded Toby can cover both environmental topics and finance, being a Chartered Environmentalist and also holding a Diploma in Financial Management from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
His main leisure activities are walking and swimming at the Stratford Leisure Centre. Though he mainly walks on the many footpaths in and around Stratford, Toby enjoys walking in various other parts of the British Isles though he finds scrabbling more of a challenge due to his fear of heights. He also likes going to the pub.
