About Hannah David

Hannah is a long standing member of the Conservative Party and a seasoned political campaigner.

Having qualified as a solicitor in 1995, Hannah built a distinguished career as a property lawyer, rising to partner at Jaffe Porter Crossick in 2006.  She has also developed a broad range of professional interests outside of her legal career, having served on the board of Elstree Film Studios and having set up her own small business. Hannah holds a masters degree in Spatial Planning from UCL.

In June 2015, Hannah founded Planning Futures, a new think tank dedicated to nurturing a new conversation about Town and Country planning.  Hannah has long been interested in improving the quality of public policy debate within the UK and is looking forward to drawing on her planning expertise to find new ways forward for the planning process in UK.

Hannah is deeply passionate about the Conservative Party.  She has been a Party activist for over 20 years and has served as a Conservative Borough Councillor and as the leader of Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council.

In 2015, Hannah stood as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Harrow West.  She was widely praised for her energy and leadership - achieving a 5.2% swing to the Conservatives and bringing the best result for the Party in Harrow West since 1992.  Hannah's work in Harrow West led her to set up the successful Harrow Business Club, which attracted top speakers from politics and business.
