I have lived in Stoke Poges since 1995, and both our children went to The Stoke Poges School, where my wife teaches music. I started taking an interest in local politics around the time of the Bells Hill redevelopment and was elected to Stoke Poges Parish Council in 2010, being elected Chairman the following year. I was elected to South Bucks District Council, representing Stoke Poges in 2011, where I became Chairman of the Planning Committee, and after re-election, in 2015 I became Leader of the Council, working regularly with County colleagues on issues including housing, health and the local economy. With my experience of local government, you can rely on me to represent your concerns effectively at County Hall.
I believe that South Bucks is a great place to live in – we have beautiful tree-lined roads and the openness of the Green Belt while enjoying the excellent road, rail and air access. I’m passionate about preserving our quality of life and ensuring that South Bucks remains a great place to live. I'm determined to see off the threat from Slough to build on our Green Belt and to preserve the semi-rural character of our quiet villages that we all enjoy so much.
