Mel Shone

KGV committee, Neighbourhood Plan and planning matters

I am a solicitor and live with my husband Doug in central Dunsfold. I enjoy taking an active part in Dunsfold life, including church, toad patrol (DART), Speedwatch and DADS.

I have helped to organise the village fete and jubilee celebrations.

I passionately stand up for causes I believe are important to the village, including as part of the Dunsfold Planning Action Group.

I care deeply about our community and natural environment.

Controversial development coupled with a decline in local services (e.g. doctors and buses) is a key concern for me.

I would describe myself as pro-active, approachable and collaborative.

My day job and experience mean I have confidence to tackle complex and difficult topics.  My core values are transparency, integrity and fairness.

As a community, we face many challenges – now elected, I am working to ensure that the council actively represents the interests of the village and people it serves.
