David Clarkson

Dave has lived in Birchwood Ward for 36 years, his children grew up there, went to local schools and went on to work in Lincoln. While it was the RAF that brought Dave, and his family, to Lincoln they chose to live in Birchwood and have stayed here ever since. After leaving the RAF, Dave worked for a leading international IT company as a Senior ICT Project Manager leading projects for major national and international companies.

While living here, Dave has seen many changes to both Birchwood and the city. He has seen our local area grow with much-needed housing, however, many residential developments were completed without any corresponding improvements to the local infrastructure. The consequences of which most of us will suffer on a daily basis. No matter in which direction you travel out of Birchwood, by car or bus, you will often experience horrendous traffic congestion. The local planning authority must consider the effects on local infrastructure before approving any more development within the wider local area.

Dave intends to devote his efforts to improve our local environment and services for the benefit of all of the people of Birchwood both resident and business alike.
