Paying tribute to her Liberal Democrat colleague, Councillor Mrs Laura Murphy said: “Ian was a rare person in today's world. A young man with a growing family, and a demanding career as an independent IT consultant, he still managed to find the time in his busy life to represent his community and stand up for the principles he held dear. Ian used his unique humour to get to the heart of what was important for the residents of Uckfield. He championed their cause and we have all lost someone who was special.”

Councillor Nigel Coltman, Leader of Wealden District Council said: “Councillor Nottage will be missed by the Council. As a new Councillor he was admired for not sitting back but being willing to 'learn on the job'. He was not afraid to ask difficult questions, and challenge the accepted way of doing things - he will be a hard act to follow.
Our thoughts and sympathy go out to his family.”

Councillor Nottage was a strong supporter of the Council’s work on affordable housing and the environment, and served as Deputy Chairman of Licensing Committee. In a short time, he had established himself as an authority on the Council's new role in liquor licensing, helping contribute to the successful introduction of the scheme.
