Cllr Robert Maitland
Living close to the centre of Nailsworth, and being constantly reminded that it is a special place, I am particularly interested in contributing to the Town Council’s efforts to look after our green spaces and protect our town from unwanted development.
As someone who was very active in Save Nailsworth Valley, I am very aware of the strength of local feeling about the importance of green spaces. I believe we need to build on that campaign and hope we can encourage local involvement in shaping any future development in and around the town.
More broadly, I think that the Council should continue to become more open, participatory and accessible, and that we should always try to be more efficient in how we do things. I have spent my career to date in public service (as a planner and then heading university programmes in tourism).
I hope my background in economics, planning, and education, and my previous experience in successful amenity groups, mean that I will be able make a useful contribution to making Nailsworth an even better place to live and work.
