Cllr Angus Forbes

Angus was elected in 2017 to represent the Carse of Gowrie ward. Since his election, Angus has built a solid reputation with his constituents as someone who can get things done. Whether that's a simple issue like a missed bin collection or a complex matter like social care, Angus is able to find solutions to problems. 

Angus is proud of his achievements such as persuading the Council to invest in a new play park in Invergowrie and one currently under construction in Longforgan, as well as speed warning signs across his ward, changes to speed limits in Errol and further investment in cycling and walking routes. 

The major investment in The Carse of Gowrie Ward by the Conservative administration is a brand new primary school in Longforgan which should be opened this year.  

During the Covid crisis, Angus has been out most days delivering  food and medicine to vulnerable and isolated people across his ward. He mostly enjoys taking on case work for people, saying  "Its a real pleasure to meet and help people with their problems". 

Angus works full time as a professional photographer and lives with his partner Susan and two rescue dogs, Pepsi and Thistle.
