I was first elected to South Derbyshire District Council as the Member for the Aston Ward in May 2007.  I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers and have used my knowledge and experience gained from my career, business & working life for the benefit of the community of South Derbyshire in the building of a better environment.

I was Chair of Environmental & Development Services when The Local Plan was adopted which now provides the policies for the social and economic development of the District for the next 20 years. My aim is to improve and build 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 60 years. It is a beautiful County with outstanding natural beauty as well as having fascinating industrial and archæological 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 more attractive, cleaner, happier, safer and more prosperous place in which to play, work and live.
