East Ward Councillor
Lyle was elected as a councillor of Ponteland Town Council on May 2017. Lyle is involved with the Highways committee and also part of the accounts committee.
Lyle works for a large multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy as a mechanical engineer where he has worked on projects from office blocks in London, a metro system in Riyadh and Data centres located internationally and locally. He is currently working towards professional chartership and enjoys travelling as part of his job.
Lyle worked for a special needs school for a period of 7 years, leading the outreach programme for post-19 students, focusing on independence and skills to becoming an adult. He really enjoyed this part of his career and found it very rewarding to see the improvements made by the students. Lyle feels this has provided him with the opportunity to improve the lives of others, and working as part of a team within the local authority interacting with parents, teachers, social workers and trustees who all have vetted interest in the students but from different perspectives. Lyle was able to lead the outreach programme and ensure all concerned were informed and happy with the service, particularly the students concerned.
