About Louise Calland

Louise Calland is the Conservative candidate for the Merton and Wandsworth GLA seat.

Louise lives in Earlsfield with her husband and is a Councillor in Battersea, having first moved to South West London over a decade ago. She initially represented Clapham Common in Lambeth as a Councillor before moving across to Wandsworth. 

Having grown up in Surrey and now commuting daily through Wandsworth and Merton to her job in health policy, she is passionate about keeping the village and community feeling of our town centres in London.

With over six years’ experience as a Councillor, she knows and understands London. She puts prevention at the heart of her politics – preventing crime, preventing poor health, and preventing damage to the environment.

A former school governor for over six years, Louise is also a Trustee of Battersea United Charities and is an active member of the 50:50 campaign which aims to get equal representation for women in politics.
