Council Responsibilities and Related Interests
Policy & Management Committee
I moved to Matfield from Tonbridge in 2017, attracted by the idyllic setting around the village green, yet also the excellent trunk road and rail connections. I accept that this connectivity, in addition to more generic central government plans, are now significantly increasing the pressure for more development, with consequent traffic implications, all of which does need to be carefully managed. The local community’s primary voice on these issues is through the Parish Council and I am keen to assist in ensuring local residents’ views are represented and that any inevitable development is sustainable and sympathetic to the existing rural environment.
A chartered surveyor by profession, I have spent most of my working life as an asset manager for a property company in the West End of London. I am married to Karen, I have 3 grown-up children. My interests are our new puppy, classic cars, motor sports (on track), travel, genealogy and gardening.
