you feel safe, whether in the home, in your school or college, at your place of work or in your later years.
together we will continue to improve the environment we live in. Your County Council is committed to reducing waste to landfill, producing more energy from renewable sources and reducing the WSCC’s carbon emissions to zero by 2030.
the County Council does all it can to support residents across West Sussex - particularly those living in Chichester North - by maintaining roads, encouraging cycling, supporting infrastructure improvements and supporting our communities.
we continue to invest in our frontline services which are there supporting our residents, especially supporting both vulnerable children and adults, families in need, as well as caring for our elderly.
as we come out of the pandemic, not only must we support those residents who have been severely impacted, but we also need to support investment in our economy - both rural and urban - in order to secure future employment.
· I have both lived and worked in the Chichester area for 42 years and I have lived in Chichester North for nearly 36 years.
· I am married to Gill, a Cicestrian, and we have two grown up daughters and a rescue Jack Russell called Buddy.
· I have always been actively involved in the community and before I became your County Councillor I was Chairman of my local Residents’ Association.
· I ran a local business, based in Lavant for 17 years, before relocating to Chichester.
- I was first elected as your County Councillor in 2013. I served as Cabinet Member for education, when in 2015 I started our campaign for fairer school funding .
· Since 2016 I have been the Cabinet Member for Finance. This has been a challenging time financially, especially the last year, so I am proud that we have presented a balanced budget every year. More importantly budgets that, year on year, have seen increased investment in frontline services.
· I actively support all the Parish Councils in my Division, as well as Residents’ Associations and, most importantly, individual residents when they need a helping hand.
- I also support my communities in opposing inappropriate development, whether it’s ‘garden grabbing’, large developments in strategic gaps or new roads that will destroy our countryside.
