Cllr Hathway's Register of Interests
We moved from Bristol to this parish in 2005. After taking early retirement I became involved with a variety of local groups and societies. I spent hours walking around the parish with our dog and discovered the many attractions of the area. It also became apparent that changes were taking place that were not always in the best interest of the local communities. In 2019 I decided it was time to join St Cuthbert Out Parish Council to help conserve and enhance this delightful part of Somerset.
My professional background is a mix of ingredients in a fusion of architecture, urban and transport planning. Work has taken me to many parts of the UK, plus Kenya, Nigeria and India. My early work was with developers on large housing and commercial projects. I have also been involved in a variety of transport schemes, the design of eco buildings and new settlements plus low cost housing for the urban poor in developing countries. Toward the end of my career I worked at the University of the West of England directing a research and consultancy unit which had a strong focus on sustainable development.
Retirement has given me a chance to develop a wide range of interests which include beekeeping, gardening, music, theatre, water divining and wildlife rehabilitation. My daughter and grandson (plus dog) have recently moved to Somerset which adds icing to the cake.
