Jonathan Farrar

I have lived on Redwood Drive since 2001, I was born in Halifax and moved to Huddersfield in 1998.

I worked for Lloyds Banking Group (formerly Halifax plc) for 23 years in various areas of the business as an analyst and the last 15 years in IT as a Project Manager. Following this I took advantage of a voluntary redundancy offer and started my own business in Property Development. In conjunction with my business I currently also have rental properties on the Woodland Glade estate.

I enjoy the gym, swimming, cycling, running and have participated in several 10km races and half marathons. I also enjoy walking in the countryside, which is ideal as we have a Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla called Oliver who has endless energy. Look out for us walking around the estate and woodlands. Oliver and I have also become part of the "dog show world", which is very interesting and fun. Alongside my hobbies I enjoy travelling, holidays and try to explore as much of the world as possible.

I am passionate about our local area, the Woodland Glade estate and premises which I think provide fantastic facilities coupled with sporting and leisure opportunities. I feel that the skills I've gained throughout my career will enable me to contribute to maintaining and further improving these facilities in the future.
