Outside the States since 2014

After leaving the States in 2014 I sought to fulfil my commitment to the members of the public whose had personal grievances against States departments requiring my assistance at the time of my election defeat .   I continued to try to help people and have assisted a group of residents to complete an agreement I had previously negotiated .

In March 2015 whilst on  a visit to Alderney , where i have been  a frequent vistor since undertaking a Planning Inquiry in 2004 ,  I was invited to take up the position of the  Islands Planning Officer and to review their Land Use Plan and Planning law  . Between June 2015 and

until September 2017 when the main project was completed I have commuted regularly  between the Islands.  Since then I have been an external adviser to their States fulfilling my commitment to the people of Alderney making occasional visits and working in Jersey and Guernsey with their law officers . My work is due to complete on 16 March 2018 when the fruits of my work are considered by their States . Full details are on the States of Alderney website and videos are on you-tube.

I have also helped people in Jersey tribunals and hearings in the meantime. I took on a major role in the Planning inquiry for Jersey’s new Hospital  as the proposed scheme will do irreparable damage to the urban environment of St Helier.

I have written for  Rural Jersey Country Life magazine, including on Alderney.
