Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Green Party


Since winning a by-election in April 2018, I have been the only Green Party councillor on the District Council, representing Wiveliscombe and West Deane. I have done my best to represent our community, work positively with others and to provide a Green voice.

I successfully proposed a climate emergency declaration by the Shadow Authority for Somerset West and Taunton, which establishes a framework for new low carbon policies.

I have also been an active member of the Scrutiny Committee for the new council and the Scrutiny Panel for Somerset Waste Partnership.

Over the last year, I had a central role in helping to save Wiveliscombe library from closure. I also assisted with many local issues and opposed speculative housing proposals and other inappropriate development.

I will continue to work hard for our area, if re-elected as one of two councillors to serve the new slightly larger Wiveliscombe and District ward.
