Since joining Blagdon Parish Council in 2013, I have become actively involved in all aspects of Council business, but particularly in a number of areas where I can best apply my experience and knowledge.

  • I act as the Lead Councillor for all Planning matters and therefore review all residential applications within the village. I also look at more strategic planning issues which will affect each of us, as evidenced by North Somerset’s current work on long-term housing requirements.
  • I am a member of the Maintenance Group helping to ensure that all our public spaces are well-kept and safe.
  • I have also joined the Finance Group to make sure that we spend your money wisely and where it can be put to best use.  At a time when budgets are being squeezed, we too have to work more efficiently, and it is vital that our financial processes are effective.

I meet some of you at Parish Council Surgeries, in the street, or in the course of carrying out my duties.  Please feel free to raise questions and issues with me.  I will try and deal with those directly where they are within my remit, or will pass them on to fellow Councillors as necessary.
