Geoff King

Born and brought up in Swindon, Geoff went to Commonweal before a career as a scientist.  Married with two grown up daughters, Geoff now teaches undergraduates in Management at the University of the West England. Geoff says: We need to make sure new business and housing developments in rural areas also take local infrastructure into consideration before plans are approved – all too often planning permission is granted for new developments without consideration for the increased traffic that will drive through our villages. I plan to bring some common sense to the process, and help protect our rural communities.
