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.
