Additional Information

I have had a long and varied career in countryside recreation, cultural heritage and tourism.  Most recently I was the CEO of Visit England, the national tourist board.  This has given me a thorough insight into the need to grow economically sustainable tourism.


I understand the challenge of balancing the dynamic of a vibrant local economy with that of maintaining a fragile natural environment.  Enjoyment and understanding should be widely promoted.
