"In West Berkshire I am the Rural Housing Enabler. I work with our rural communities to identify people who cannot access housing on the open market. Where there is local support I help bring together the community, local landowners, Housing Associations and West Berkshire District Council to develop homes for local people. In Windsor and Maidenhead I focus on Neighbourhood Planning, working with groups to help them identify the evidence they need to develop strong local policies that support sustainable communities."
