I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and have used my knowledge and experience for the benefit of the community of South Derbyshire in the building of a better environment since I was elected for the Aston Ward in 2007.

As Chair of Environmental & Development Services I look forward to the adoption of the Local Plan which will provide the policies for the social and economic development of the District for the next 20 years. My aim is for new houses, schools, medical services and industry to meet the demands of our increasing population.  I will seek a commitment from developers to build affordable homes on their sites for young people and those living alone.

Derbyshire has been my adopted home for more than 50 years. It is a beautiful County with outstanding natural beauty as well as having fascinating industrial and archaeological heritage with Swarkestone Bridge and Causeway being unique. I am passionate about its preservation and will campaign for an alternative route to ensure its survival.

I look forward to making South Derbyshire a happier, safer and more prosperous place in which to play, work and live.
