Profile:

I have represented Quantock Vale for the past twelve years. During that time I have negotiated with EdF and their contractors, a lengthsman scheme for Stogursey, new drainage for local playing field, and at present negotiating a mini-bus service for outlying hamlets and villages to enable use of the free bus service.

I am passionate about encouraging small, sustainable businesses, and enthusiastic at enabling small scale housing development for local young families. But this has to be sustainable, and appropriate for the hosting Parishes.

I have been involved with the HPC project from the start, and was fortunate to be the Chairman of the Community Impact Mitigation fund group, which awarded £7.5m to local projects for local groups.

I am also a member of several groups looking at radio-active waste storage, not only from the new HPC site, but also the potential for "imported" waste onto the HPA site, something that we had always said "no" to, and the decommissioning of HPB once the new station is up and running.
