Peter has lived in the borough for most of his life, his parents moved here when he was five. He is married with four children and five grandchildren. His children went to schools in the borough and he was a school governor for many years. Since 2003 he has worked in the borough having started a consultancy advising on contaminated land.
On his reasons for getting involved in local politics Peter said "I thought that rather than shouting at the TV or radio it was finally time to get off the sofa and get stuck in, if I was going to make a difference. I want to live in a place where everyone feels they are listened to and treated with respect."
"I am an engineer I believe in doing things because they work, because they achieve their objective. We need a rational borough wide approach to improving air quality with measurable results. Technology and the pandemic have changed the way we work, we need to grasp the potential for hybrid and remote working to make the workplace more inclusive."
