Biography:

I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers.  Since I was elected to the Aston Ward in 2007, I have used my professional knowledge and experience gained from my career, business and 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 a fascinating industrial and archæological heritage with the 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.
