County Council Elections: Vote for Clifford Hobbs in Croome on May 6th
By Dan Boatright
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.
He and his wife enjoy walking locally and visiting the many beautiful places in and around the county.
