"Having chosen to live in West Devon some 7 years ago, I am keen to conserve the heritage assets, landscape and biodiversity of the borough. I have represented residents of Milton Ford Ward for the past 4 years, served as deputy leader of the council and actively participated on the Resources (finance), Planning and Standards Committees. Milton Ford Ward now includes Lamerton and Sydenham Damerel Parishes in addition to Milton Abbot.
My campaign priorities are:
Support the local economy, including farm diversification, where it does not harm the environment.
Support residents’ planning applications that are appropriate to their setting and generally supported by the local community.
Oppose commercial wind turbine developments and large solar arrays, which have an unacceptable adverse impact on the landscape and bring little or no benefit to the local community
Represent the concerns and interests of all local residents and Parish Councils in Milton Ford Ward at West Devon Borough Council.
Continue to work closely with other Councillors in developing policies such as Our Plan, that benefit all residents of West Devon."
