Additional Information

I am an elected Councillor on both Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire Dales District Council and am a member of the Planning Committees of both these Councils.


I live just outside the National Park boundary in Darley Dale and am a shop manager.  My family have been farmers in Derbyshire for over 100 years and I have run my own business.


In my County Councillor role I have had experience of cultural heritage issues as their representative on the Derwent Valley World Mills Heritage site.


I think the Peak District National Park Authority should be looking to bring more affordable housing schemes forward to preserve the communities within the National Park.  I will promote the National Park Authority more and support closer workings with other Authorities that surround the National Park.  I would also support national promotion of the National Park and closer working ties with the other National Parks.


In my role of Derbyshire County Councillor I am a member of the following:


Cromford Quarry Liaison Committee

Derbyshire Dales Community Safety Partnership

Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Partnership

Markham Vale Liaison Committee

Peak District Local Access Forum.
