I want to see Greener developments and more affordable housingI have started working with the Lammas and Buxton Neighbourhood Plan and I am excited by the level of engagement that people have had by commenting on the areas put forward in the GNLP and suggesting better more appropriate sites. I want to ensure this vision is carried through by the BDC. It is too easy to see local views steamrollered and it has to stop.

GNLP proposals would bring too many houses or suggest those in the wrong place so they not only increase the potential for flooding, but already congested streets could be even worse.

I bring expert environmental and sustainability knowledge to the deliberations of the council

I am solution orientated but balance this with an experience of listening to local communities, ensuring their voices are represented.
