About Malcolm:
Malcolm was born in North Devon and has lived in Woolacombe for nearly 50 years. He studied Art & Design in Leeds and spent the whole of his professional career as Head of Creative Arts at Ilfracombe Academy.

He has been a member of Mortehoe Parish Council for in excess of 35 years and has represented the ward of Mortehoe & West Down on North Devon Council for the last 24 years. His great passion is to try and protect the integrity of the rural villages as well as balancing it with the benefits of tourism in our area. For many years we have seen the value of properties escalate through the increasing amount of second homes. He is a member of, and welcomes the formation of, Community Land Trusts (CLT’s) in both villages with the aim of providing homes for local families at an affordable rent. 

We are fortunate to live in an area that consistently wins National and International accolades for its beauty. It is vital that we pay great respect to the effects of climate change. As NDC Lead Member for Coastal Communities, Malcolm works hard to ensure that environmental and social issues are brought to the forefront. He has taken several motions to the Council to highlight, amongst other issues, the dangers of indiscriminate discharges of sewage by the Water Authorities into rivers and the sea. He is also a keen member of the board of trustees for the recently awarded World Surfing Reserve status for North Devon. The mantra is to protect the quality and cleanliness of both the waves and ocean.
