David Yates - Chair

David Yates Board MemberChair of the Board - elected 2019

I joined the Gateway Tenant Committee in 2012, becoming Vice Chair in 2013 and Chair in 2014. My election onto Board in 2015 was a very proud moment, superseded only by my appointment as Chair at the AGM in 2019. I am keen to ensure that my experience adds real value to the effective governance of CGA. As Chair of the Board, I help to ensure that tenants remain at the heart of all we do.


I am passionate about ensuring that we are conscious of conserving the environment and maintaining much valued green spaces, as we continue to develop and build new homes. As part of an Action Group, I play a key role in developing our communication channels and I am the Chair of the Editorial Panel who develop our newsletter, Gateway News.
