Roger Dobson - County Councillor for Corby & Hayton
Roger lives with his wife near to Heads Nook. They have four children and five grandchildren and like to keep fit by walking their dogs and cycling.
Prior to retiring, Roger held senior human resources roles for a number of companies across the UK, Europe and Latin America. He also chaired the audit committee of the Scottish Exam Board.
He is particularly interested in promoting green energy, tackling the climate emergency and improving public transport.
In 2021, Roger was elected County Councillor for Corby and Hayton, securing more than 70% of the vote and now, as a resident of the ward, he is a strong voice for the local area, ensuring that it is properly represented and not neglected by remote decision makers.
Keen to listen to the views of local residents, Roger has been working closely with all six parish councils and is currently campaigning for:
- 20mph speed limits in villages and high-risk areas in order to reduce accidents, lower emissions and protect road surfaces. Roger has requested a report on the implications of proposed changes from the Highways Officer which will be considered by the Council in May 2022.
- Termination of recycling outside of planning permissions at Esk Quarry, Faugh
- Detrunking of the A69 and redirection of heavy traffic onto the A689 at Brampton. Roger has convinced the National Highways responsible for the road to conduct a safety review which will consider several measures he's proposed.
- Addressing the need for continued repair to potholes, drain clearance and culverts. Roger continues to scrutinise the County Council's investment, equipment and processes and has recently helped secure an additional £1.2 million for repairing potholes.
