My skill set includes urban and environmental design and I understand development proposals and how to assess them.

I have worked for 10 years in the UK and 15 years in NZ and deliver strong and inclusive project leadership. Considering others and those less fortunate are core values for me and caring for my 3 children for 5 years has helped my understanding of community pressures.

I would bring a strategic planning approach to the policy and financial decisions Council requires and will give the role my full attention. Infrastructure, social housing, small business, and climate change are my priorities.
