Nickie Aiken

Member of Parliament for the Cities of London & Westminster
Councillor for Warwick ward

Nickie Aiken has lived in the Cities of London and Westminster for more than 20 years, first moving to London in 1997. She lived in the Barbican in the heart of the City of London before moving to Pimlico where she has been raising her family since 1999. Married to Alex, her two teenage children, now at secondary school attended a local state nursery and local primary schools.

First elected to Westminster City Council in 2006 to represent Warwick Ward, Nickie has been elected three times since. She has held various positions in Westminster City Council’s Cabinet including children’s services, public protection and licensing. Nickie introduced a number of reforms in each of these positions and Westminster City Council’s Children’s services made history when it was the first in the country to be rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted.

From 2017 to 2020 Nickie served as Leader of Westminster City Council, working closely with the City of London Corporation.  This experience has led Nickie to have a unique awareness of the challenges facing both the City of London and the important role it has in strengthening our economy and The City of Westminster as the ‘capital of the capital’.

Under Nickie’s leadership, Westminster began the largest council home building programme for a generation to provide over 2000 new affordable and social rented homes. Reformed the planning system to make it more open and transparent, giving residents a bigger and earlier voice in the planning process. And started cleaning up our air by launching the #DontBeIdle campaign encouraging idling vehicles to turn off their engines.

In November 2019, Nickie was selected as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for the Cities of London & Westminster. She was elected in December's General Election. You can find out more about her work as a Member of Parliament via this website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
