Vice Chairman

Cllr Tony Markley

Cllr Tony Markley


It is a very great honour to be the Vice Chairman of Cumbria County Council.

I grew up in Abbeytown where my family owned an agricultural engineering business. I met and married my wife Denise 40 years ago and moved to Silloth, where we built up successful businesses in haulage, coach operations, storage and property; from which we are both now retired.

I have been a Councillor for over 25 years and during that time have held multiple positions representing my local community and the residents of Cumbria.

I very much look forward to my year ahead serving the people of Cumbria as Vice Chair.
