Party: Bridgwater Mercury: ElectionsModule Party Logo Liberal Democrat


I LIVE in North Petherton ward in Wilstock with my wife and daughter.. 
I adore my two-year-old daughter and love my family. I am a keen sailor and skier. 
I was educated at University of Glasgow where I gained my medical degree. I hold a Masters degree in Sociology from University of Bristol. I am a member of the Royal college of Psychiatrists. 
I work as a Consultant Psychiatrist in the NHS. I am a member of the Medical Advisory Committee and an Educational Supervisor. 
Too many houses are being built in the North Petherton area with limited infrastructure. There is a lack of provision for parking, public transport and local amenities. Consequently, local schools, GP surgeries and our road transport system are all at breaking point. 
If elected, I would put forward an immediate motion to set up a Special Select Committee to look for remedies and facilitate cooperate with other agencies to set things right! 
We will scrutinise all future planning request to ensure that the interest of the local residents are not sacrificed for the profit of developers.
