Paul has lived in the Cotswolds for 28 years.

He represented the Churn Valley on Cotswold District Council from 2007 to 2015. 

In 2013 he won the County Council seat of Bourton and Northleach, which had previously always been Conservative and was re-elected with a majority of 800 votes in 2017.

A successful local businessman, Paul set up his executive coaching practice in 2004. He has a strong record of campaigning for local people - he has fought against high parking charges, led road safety campaigns and successfully lobbied for faster broadband for our rural areas.

Paul is tackling the lack of mobile phone signal in some villages and has challenged the Conservative-run County Council to invest more in our potholed roads. He is also pushing for better ambulance response times which are very poor in the Cotswolds.
