I am a Building Engineer and retired Chartered Building Surveyor; and I have considerable knowledge of the built environment, including project management, specifying, regulations and law. I worked in Bristol City Council for 22 years and became a Senior Surveyor. My expertise is housing, and especially low energy, affordable and accessible housing; including air quality. I hale from Nottingham, and I have lived around the UK and in Canada. I settled in FC in 1992, self-built two very low energy homes and raised four children. I’ve cycled all my life, I’m a dog lover, caravanner, keen gardener and I love cooking. I find it very satisfying building stone walls.
I’m keen to preserve the best of what FC offers to all its residents and to promote the environment where we live for generations to come.
