Peter Montagnon has lived locally for 27 years. Now semi-retired, he has worked as a national and international news journalist, in investment and financial regulation and in business ethics. He is married with two children and five grandchildren all of whom currently live abroad.
He says: "Local issues affect all of us directly. I am standing for election in Lingfield because I strongly believe that working together with Liberal Democrat colleagues it should be possible to ensure that the village remains a good place to live. Priority District Council issues for me for me are planning and parking.”
