Is a member of the Planning Committee and the Traffic and Transport Working Party
Is the deputy representative on the Isle of Wight Association of Local Councils
I live with a long-suffering wife, Karen and two children in Wyatts Lane.
My family has lived in Northwood for many generations, and I returned to the area wanting to give my family a better life in 1999.
I became involved in public life because I felt elected representatives didn’t put the views of local residents first. Enthused by my attitude, I bizarrely became the youngest prospective Member of the European Parliament when selected by the Green Party in 1994!
On leaving ‘party politics’, I served as an Independent I.W. Councillor for Ryde between 1995 and 2001, increasing my majority on re-election in 1998. Between 2001 and 2005, I became a Cowes Town Councillor, and Gurnard Parish Councillor since 2005.
In Northwood I have served Northwood Residents’ Association and was privileged to enthusiastically chair the Northwood Community Partnership and Village Management Committee. I coordinated the Northwood Parish Plan and aspired to ensure those activities were motivated and transparent.
I also serve as a Justice of the Peace, Northwood School Governor, helped form Island Governors and recently the Friends of Northwood Cemetery.
My main interests include Transport, Planning, improving Youth Facilities, Leisure and the Environment. I endeavour to be a good listener and to act in accordance with views put. If I fail to live up to your expectations, I deserve to be given a hard time! If you haven’t received my full leaflet and require a copy please do not hesitate to contact me!
