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.
