Peter Coggins is standing in the Oxfordshire County Council elections on 4 May 2017 as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the county division of Churchill & Lye Valley.
Peter has lived in East Oxford for over 30 years, spending 10 of those on the committee of the Divinity Road Area Residents' Association, in various roles including that of Chair.
He is a retired surveyor who has a keen interest in housing matters and in particular the shortage of affordable housing in Oxford.
Peter says, "I worked hard during that period to promote the interests of local residents with a particular focus on traffic and planning issues. I was part of a team that was influential in preventing developments that were harmful to the local environment.
As a bird lover I am concerned about the quality of the natural environment in Oxford and will campaign to protect and enhance it. I am a keen cyclist and support the Space for Cycling campaign in Oxford which lobbies for investment in cycling infrastructure for all ages and abilities."
