I am a retired civil engineer having spent 40 years working in the flood and coastal defence field. Some of this work was in the Broads and on the Norfolk coast with eight years managing the flood defences in the Broads (in the 1980s). I am very interested in how sea level rise and climate change will affect the Broads and how these changes will be managed. I have sailed dinghies on the Broads and am a Trustee of the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust which looks after five of the remaining eight wherries on the Broads and keeps them in sailing condition.
I was previously appointed to the Broads Authority by the Secretary of State from 2015 to 2019. Since April 2019 I have been a co-opted member of the Navigation Committee.
