Appointments to outside bodies
I was elected councillor for
the Westgate ward in 2015, having been councillor for Harbledown since 1987 and am Leader of the Liberal
Democrat Group on the city council.
I supported the campaign to
make the council more democratic by changing the way it is run from
the Executive system to the Committee system.
For the past 13 years I have
campaigned against plans for a Park & Ride in Harbledown, originally at Hall Place and then on
the pear orchards below Kent College Junior School. In April
2014 the council finally agreed to remove all references from the
draft Local Plan to a Park & Ride in Harbledown.
I chaired the Best Value Review
which recommended the establishment of the Whitstable Harbour
Board. I subsequently chaired the Harbour Board for the first
seven years during which time we turned round the harbour’s
finances and it has become an extremely successful niche

I have lived in the St.
Dunstan’s area of Canterbury for over 35 years. I am a Chartered Engineer and a director of a
specialist engineering consulting company.
