I have lived in West Linton for 3 years, having moved from Edinburgh after retiring. I was a GP in Midlothian for 25 years though latterly my job was mainly Health Planning and Service Development.
I now have time to spare and would like to give some to the community. My aim on the Community Council would be to seek out and represent the views of residents, to address your priorities. Planning decisions take up much of the Community Councils time and I would commit to preserving the heart of the village and supporting only developments which will improve the living and working environment of West Linton.
