Why did you decide to become a PP board member?

After several years working in conjunction with private stakeholders and local government on many of Preston’s most iconic developments, becoming involved with Preston Partnership felt like a natural step to continue to promote the growth of the city through collaboration between the private and public sector.

What is your Preston ambition?

To encourage community engagement and continued collaboration to ensure that the greatest potential of the city is reached for Preston’s residents and businesses. Preston has seen a great deal of positive change over recent years and our ambition is to continue this as far as possible across Preston’s various communities.
