Gavin leads a team of dedicated officers who volunteer their time to support councillors, seek new candidates and hold fundraising events to support election campaigns at city, district and county council level. He returned to the city council after winning the May 2021 election to represent Wittering ward which also covers the parishes of Wansford, Thornhaugh, Sutton and Upton.
First elected to Peterborough City Council in 2008, Gavin is a former Cabinet Member with extensive experience of local government. Despite winning a hard-fought by-election in Orton Longueville ward in 2018, he was narrowly defeated by a Labour activist in 2019.
Having been one of three councillors who expressed public frustration at the failure of MPs to deliver the Referendum result, this played a part in his losing the seat as Conservative voters showed their displeasure at what was happening nationally. Undeterred, Gavin continued to campaign for the Party and was elected unopposed to become chairman of the local association.
Since being selected to stand as prospective candidate in the city council ward of Wittering, he has been working closely with MP Shailesh Vara to resolve the high-profile issue of MoD housing evictions.
