Robin Shirtcliffe

Our family moved to Ashbourne 3 years ago, because we valued the Town's history, culture and facilities and wanted our children to grow up here. I am grateful to have been welcomed into this community and, if elected, I would be honoured to give something back to the place we now call home.

I am a Chartered Engineer, and have worked as in Systems Engineering for Rolls-Royce for the past 21 years. Systems Engineering is all about listening to stakeholders and coming up with creative solutions. I would like to bring these skills to the Council, and use them to represent Ashbourne South. I want the District Council to work better to deliver the services we all pay for and all value, as efficiently as possible. I promise to listen to all and work collaboratively with anyone who shares a positive vision for the area.

I want to ensure that the emerging Ashbourne Neighbourhood Plan is coherent and protects the Town's character. I believe that a well designed development can be an agent for positive change, helping create new houses, improve facilities and support local business; but only if the promises made by developers and the District Council during planning applications are met, unaltered and delivered in a timely manner. I will do everything I can to ensure such promises are met.
