Name: Martin Peters

Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Candidate photo

Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Liberal Democrat


I have lived in Manor and Tangier ward for 12 years and I work in the ward, for the NHS, at Musgrove Hospital.

In the past, I worked for Taunton Deane Borough Council in planning admin, gaining experience of the planning process and using my degree in geography and history.

I am a member of the RCN, active in Taunton Amnesty and I have enjoyed working cross-party in organisations like Make Votes Matter and Compass.

I have a record of campaigning on local environmental issues, e.g. submitting a petition with 1,000 signatures in favour of more pedestrianisation on Sundays only and better cycle routes.

I support the Taunton Area Cycling Campaign and I am pleased that Taunton has obtained Garden Town status.

I will strongly promote policies that enhance and protect our green spaces, tackle the hospital parking issue, improve public transport and provide more social and affordable housing.
