Councillor Tom Marshall was elected as a Conservative representative for the North Coast and Cumbraes Ward at the May 2012 Local Government Election.

Prior to this he was a Councillor to Cunninghame District Council in 1988, where he served for two, four year terms, initially in the Fairlie, Skelmorlie and Millport Ward and later in the Largs South Ward.  Formation of Unitary Councils meant he could no longer continue as a Councillor and teacher for the same authority and so he retired from the Council.

Councillor Marshall is the Chair of the Planning Committee and Local Review Body and is Vice Chair of the Local Development Plan Committee. He also sits on the Audit & Scrutiny Committee, the Education Appeal Committee, Staffing and Recruitment Committee along with the North Coast Locality Planning Partnership and North Ayrshire Council (Planning) and NAC (Planning) (Pre-Determination Hearing).

Councillor Marshall also represents North Ayrshire Council on the COSLA Convention, Haylie House Board of Trustees, Hunterston Site Stakeholders Group, Largs Matters and Millport Economic Forum.
