I have been qualified for over 30 years as an Environmental Health Officer, with 15 working as a consultant, specialising in private sector housing.

I am a recognised trainer delivering courses for the CIEH on HHSRS assessment and enforcement and HMO practical inspections. I also deliver training courses to private landlords for Tigrent Training UK on HHSRS and HMOs.

Since working at Oxford I have managed the HMO and Private Sector Safety Teams, Oxford having city wide additional licensing for HMOs and taken numerous prosecutions for failure to license and management regulation contraventions.

I have acted as an expert witness for both local authorities and private landlords at residential property tribunals.

I can contribute a wealth of practical experience and knowledge to the furtherance of the aims and objectives of the network.
