Huddersfield Parliamentary Candidate

Councillor Andrew Cooper who has represented the Newsome Ward on Kirklees for the last 16 years has been selected as Green Party Candidate for Huddersfield in May’s General Election. Andrew has been re-elected 4 times in Newsome with significant majorities over the Labour Party.

Andrew Cooper

Andrew was born in Barnsley, brought up in Huddersfield and has worked for York, Calderdale and Kirklees Councils. For the last 8 years he has worked in the private sector developing energy saving schemes to help householders insulate their homes, improve their heating and install solar panels. He is married with 2 children and lives in Brockholes near Holmfirth.

Andrew has a long track record of many achievements for the people of Huddersfield which include:

  • Proposing the UK’s first universally free insulation scheme, Kirklees Warm Zone that saw tens of thousands of homes insulated across Huddersfield.
  • Leading the campaign to replace ‘Welcome to Kirklees’ with ‘Welcome to Huddersfield’ signs.
  •  Initiating the 2000 house solar panel programme which will see Council Tenants in Kirklees benefit from solar electricity saving them up to 2 weeks rent worth of electricity savings. This will be at no cost to the Council Tax payer and not impact on Kirklees Council budgets.
  • Organising a free Christmas Bus Service in the Newsome Ward for the past 23 years
