Profile:

Eddie has achieved three successful careers in electronic engineering, education and environmental health.

He has campaigned vigorously against inappropriate developments, especially when the local character of the area was threatened.

Whilst canvassing support in Milverton and District ward Eddie has been impressed to find such strong support for the restoration/redevelopment of Tonedale Mill.

Just outside the new ward boundary it was once the largest woollen mill in the South West and was famous for the khaki dye used by the British Army.

A sensitive and mixed development could maintain the iconic atmosphere, as well as providing new housing and business premises for small and medium companies.

Eddie fully supports The Liberal Democrat Manifest for this election.

In particular he believes we must ensure developers deliver a target of 25% affordable homes with a realistic price tag.

The council must also build more council houses at social rents.
