About Peter

Hello, my name is Peter Bedford and I have had the privilege of representing the Markfield, Desford & Thornton (incl. Bagworth, Botcheston & Stanton under Bardon) Division of Leicestershire County Council since 2017.


In my professional life I am a Chartered Accountant and currently serve as a senior manager within the water utilities industry.


It has been a real honour to serve on the County Council and champion the issues that matter to local people, be it:

  • Campaigning against increased HGV traffic through Markfield;
  • Raising road safety issues in Desford;
  • Working to solve parking issues in Thornton
  • Tackling speeding through Bagworth;
  • Saving rural bus services in Stanton under Bardon; and
  • Addressing flooding issues in Botcheston.


I feel proud to have directly helped over 200 residents through casework on a range of issues from school placements and grass verges through to noise nuisance and anti-social behaviour.


I passionately believe that your concerns are my concerns.
