Phil is responsible for the north of the county, covering Whitchurch and the Market Drayton area. With over 35 years’ experience in building control, most of which was working for local authorities in north Shropshire and latterly Shropshire Council as a senior surveyor, Phil has expertise in a variety of building projects, including small domestic, large housing developments, large retail and commercial projects and bespoke industrial projects, including fire safety engineering solutions.

As a fully qualified member of the Institute of Fire Engineers, he has specialist knowledge in fire safety engineering solutions. Having worked for many years in the north of the county, Phil prides himself on having extensive knowledge of the area, in particular the varying geo-technical issues encountered around north Shropshire and Oswestry.

In his spare time Phil is keen on outdoor activities including Mountain Biking, and regularly participates in Paddlesport where he's a qualified coach educator and assessor. He's also a keen theatre-goer and likes watching rock bands.
