About Pippa Heylings

Joining my GP Dad on his rounds in areas of deprivation in Hull opened my eyes to the impacts of inequality. I realised how important it is to have a strong, properly funded NHS and safety nets for the vulnerable. Ever since, I have wanted to give back to society, driven by the values he instilled in me.

Putting my roots down locally

My career in environmental policy has taken me around the world. I run my own company working with national governments and the UN. My approach is to bring people together, so that all voices are heard, making policy decisions that are evidence-based, sustainable and practical.

I moved with my family to the area in 2012. I became active in the community, volunteering to help the girls football, and eco-sustainability groups. In 2018 I was elected to South Cambridgeshire District Council. As co-chair of the local COVID-19 coordination team, I have helped to foster a strong sense of community and resilience in our villages.

My winning record

  • I topped the poll to win the Histon & Impington district council seat in 2018. I helped lead the team that gained 57% of votes in this year’s county elections - the highest Lib Dem vote share in South Cambs.
  • My energetic campaign took the Lib Dems to a strong second place in South East Cambs at the last election.
  • As Chair of the Climate and Environment committee, Pippa has led to the council’s change to being one of the greenest in the UK and awarded a Public Sector Transformation Award.
  • I won a poll of Lib Dem councillors this year to be elected as their Lib Dem voice nationally on the economy, housing, transport and the environment.
  • I’m a proven political fundraiser. I raised over £70k in just six weeks in 2019. We will need to raise this and much more to win in South Cambs, and I have the track record to achieve it.
