Nigel has extensive experience in municipal governance serving as Chief Building Inspector for several local municipalities over 3 decades. Nigel is passionate about people and brings vital knowledge and experience to all aspects of our governance.
Nigel has vast experience as the Codes and Standards Officer for the Office of the Fire Commissioner during which time he helped put together the first BC Fire Code and was one of twelve representatives who assembled the first BC Building Code. He now works with private developers as a planning and codes consultant and also sits on the Board of the Vancouver Island Safety Council. He holds a Diploma in Building Technology from BClT and a Masters Degree in Business from Royal Roads University.
Nigel hopes his expertise in the area of building and planning will bring together Woodwynn Farms and Central Saanich Municipality in order to develop a new land use zone that will permit labour intensive farming allowing the homeless to live on the land as they train and rebuild their lives.
