Born near Oxford I feel privileged to be living in our unique Market Town for 12 years with my wife Jackie. We love sharing the Cotswolds with our children and grandchildren.
My experience chairing Company Boards and National Trade Associations, plus involvement with several organisations in the town gives me hopefully the background to understand, defend and promote the interests of the Town. Hence I am committed to good communication with and representation of the views of residents and I will continue to do this to the best of my ability if re-elected.
My primary Council focus over 7 years has been "planning". I agree we need new and affordable housing, but I believe we must resist the development of major estates such as proposed for Aston Fields and Leasows, which would be highly detrimental to the character of our town. I have been heavily involved in presenting these views at Cotswold District Council and most recently responding to their Local Plan and forwarding our own Neighbourhood Plan.
