Conor Burns was born in Belfast and grew up in Hertfordshire, before studying History and Politics at Southampton University. After a career in business on the south coast, he was elected Member of Parliament for Bournemouth West in 2010 and again in 2015.
Conor has been working hard at Westminster and in Bournemouth for all his constituents. He has been especially proud to have secured £20 million in funding for St Aldhelm’s Academy and the Bourne Academy building works, to have successfully fought the planned development on Talbot Heath, and to have kept the pressure on government to ensure that immigration rules do not adversely affect local language schools. He continues to oppose the Navitus Bay Wind Farm, and will do all he can to fight it. Conor's priorities in the years to come will continue to be to champion Bournemouth, its tourist economy and creative industries, and its vibrant universities and language schools.
