Councillor Andrews was born and raised in Coventry and was elected to the City Council on 1 May 2008 to represent Earlsdon Ward. He was re-elected with an increased majority in 2012.
He attended Manor Park Primary and Sherbourne Fields Schools, due to being diagnosed with Arthritis aged nine. He graduated from the University of Kent in 2005 and worked at the European Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg before moving to Rolls-Royce in Ansty.
He is a member of the Public Services, Energy and Environment Scrutiny Board, the Council's Ethics Committee, the Coventry and Solihull Waste Disposal Company Limited Advisory Forum, the Coventry Fairtrade Steering Group, the Cycling Coventry Cabinet Member Advisory Panel and is a Board Member at the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre. He is also a governor at Earlsdon Primary School, a member of the Coventry Police & Crime Board, the Coventry Award of Merit Panel, and the Coventry Good Citizen Award Panel.
Councillor Andrews is very active in the communities he represents and regularly attends meeting with residents' associations, submits petitions on behalf of local people and supports local initiatives wherever possible. He campaigned successfully to return the popular Earlsdon Festival to the heart of the local community after a decade of being held on Hearsall Common and campaigned to prevent a bendibus being used through Earlsdon, thus protecting the historic 'clock roundabout'. He also led the campaign against the Council's plans to introduce car parking charges at the War Memorial Park, which sits in the heart of Earlsdon Ward. He is currently campaigning for the introduction of a 20mph zone in Beechwood Gardens, for resident parking schemes in Earlsdon and for the rebuild of St Thomas More School in Styvechale.
He has helped to secure funding for the Friends of the War Memorial Park, the Earlsdon Traders Association for Christmas lights and for the organisers of the Earlsdon Festival. Allan is keen to keep residents up to date with local issues and runs an email update service and canvasses local opinion regularly. In May 2013, he was elected Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group and is the Conservative Spokesman for Community Safety, Equalities & Public Services. He is also a member of the Licensing & Regulatory Committee.
