I am a local businessman and have lived in Taunton all my life. I moved to Staplegrove over 20 years ago when I married my wife Caroline, who has lived in this area for over 40 years. We have 2 children, both boys and they went to Taunton School. As a local businessman, I recognise the problems that we face, higher business rates, increased costs and a decline in footfall. I am passionate about Taunton and our local community and I want to make sure that infrastructure, parking and housing are right for us. Taunton, as a county town should be just that, making parking free and attracting the right retailers is key to improving our offer. As a councillor, I will work tirelessly with the developer of the new Staplegrove development to make it appealing and right for all.
