District Councillor for Fernhurst Ward
I am your Conservative District Councillor for the Fernhurst Ward.
I was born and brought up in Billingshurst and have lived in Lurgashall for the last 20 years. I studied Engineering at London and Cambridge Universities and did an MBA at London Business School. I have had a 36 year career in the computer industry, which involved both delivery and sales of computer services to the public sector. I retired from Hewlett Packard in 2015.
I have been a Parish Councillor in Lurgashall for 20 years, chaired the Planning Committee for 10 years and been Chairman of the Lurgashall Parish Council for the last year. This has given me extensive knowledge of planning issues which are an important part of the District Councillor's work.
I will do my best to represent your interests on Chichester District Council and follow up on any issues you raise with me where you need assistance.
My priorities are to make sure we get good value for money from our Council taxes and to make sure we preserve the beautiful rural environment we live in.
