Alastair lives in Claygate with his family. A trained teacher and special educational needs expert, he works locally, but also offers his expert services as a consultant to schools beyond Elmbridge.
Alastair’s Action List for Hinchley Wood, Claygate and Oxshott
- Better access to local school places & adequate funding
- Safer roads for pedestrians, cars and cyclists
- Protecting green belt from development
- Better care for the elderly, young and vulnerable
- Manage the budget better – with more transparency and openness
Having been raised in Claygate and attended local schools, Alastair is very familiar with educational issues in Elmbridge and Surrey. With two teenagers himself, Alastair has first-hand experience of Surrey’s poor track record in providing adequate school places.
While education is closest to Alastair’s heart, his decision to stand as a candidate for councillor is motivated by years of mismanagement of Surrey’s finances at the hands of the Tory administration. He wants to hold the administration to account and help manage the budget better.
