Richard Scoates

Councillor for Darwin
Richard is a Civil and Structural Engineer and has lived in the Borough all his life apart from 5 years spent at university. Richard is a great supporter of preserving the greenbelt from inappropriate development, and believes that planning should be made more localised – after all, local residents are best placed to know what’s best for their local community.
