Councillor Sundip Meghani
15 June 2023
First Elected
15 June 2023

I was elected to South Derbyshire District council on 15 June 2023. 

I live in Hilton with my wife – and I am proud to serve the people of Hilton, Church Broughton, Foston and Scropton, Sutton-on-the-Hill, and Marston-on-Dove. 

In addition to my role as District Councillor for Hilton, I serve as Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group and, therefore, Deputy Leader of the Opposition. I am also Deputy Chair of the South Derbyshire Conservative Association. 

I work as a solicitor and senior investigator for an international organisation. I am also an accredited mediator specialising in commercial disputes. 

I have undertaken many years of public service, notably as a Leicester City Councillor (4-year term), as a school governor, and as a charity trustee. I served previously as a board member of the Leicestershire Police Authority, where I led efforts to save more than 200 policing jobs. 

I am proud of Britain’s values and traditions, and I believe in the ideals and institutions of our democracy. Throughout my legal, regulatory, and political careers I have worked hard to uphold the rule of law and challenge corruption and misconduct, as well as scrutinise power, solve problems, and save jobs. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require my assistance.
