    Clifford Hobbs - CROOME

    Clifford was brought up in Upton where his wider family remain. After training as an engineer in Malvern he worked around the country and overseas for many years before returning home to Worcestershire over 20 years ago where he now works as a part time consultant.

    Given his professional background, he is particularly interested in good quality and cost effective public services. He wants more open discussion about the right balance between the types and number of homes needed locally and maintaining a healthy and biodiverse environment . Poor planning has led to too many homes on flood plains and new homes are still being built to inadequate insulation standards and with no electric car chargers, both of which will hinder vital progress towards carbon neutrality over the next few decades. Clifford believes that for too long the complacent Conservative County Council has had no effective opposition which has led to appalling standards in Adult Social Care and a lack of any clear strategy to support the fight against climate change.

  • Jack
    Article: Apr 25, 2021

    Jack lives on Barnards Green Road and has recently trained to become a transport planner. He cares greatly about ensuring residents can access public transport, walking and cycling more. He already serves the community as a Malvern Town Councillor, where he has seen the County Council failing to
    deal with issues that matter to local people. He wants to change that and demand better for Malvern.
