Peter represents the ward of Old Bracknell on the Bracknell Forest Borough Council and the Bracknell Town Council.
"I have lived in Bracknell since 2009 and have served - as both a Borough and Town Councillor - representing Old Bracknell for the last 8 years. I really appreciate Bracknell as a great place to work and live.
On the borough council I have since 2015 been the executive member with responsibility for Transformation and Finance. I am proud of Bracknell Forest’s strong financial management during very testing times – we have one of the lowest Council Tax rates in the country - and a successful transformation programme which, despite external pressures, means that we have maintained and improved all our vital services to our residents.
Since elected I have been a Business Champion and Chairman of both Governance and Audit and the Corporate Parenting Advisory Panel. I also represent Bracknell Forest on the Easthampstead and Wildridings Community Centre.
I maintain an active presence within Old Bracknell holding regular surgeries, and have established a reputation of being approachable and responsive. I probably enjoy my ward work more than anything else helping residents with a myriad of issues, whether it is housing, safety, parking, care – or just helping resolve local neighbourhood “problems”.
I am also very active in the local business community.
My own business background continues to serve me with the financial, people and general management skills which I use on your behalf. I value being a Councillor - as your link between the council and the community - providing representation and leadership.
A lifelong Conservative, I believe in sound public finances and spreading opportunity, enterprise and ownership across the community."
