Richard Taylor

I moved to Minstead in 1993 after a career in the oil industry in London.

Since then my wife and I have been very busy raising a family and running our small holding where we rear sheep and cattle. My particular passions are restoring hedgerows to provide wildlife habitat and playing all kinds of music.

I’ve been a Minstead parish councillor since 2010 and I enjoy trying to find practical solutions to problems within the unique environment of the New Forest. I am keen that the views of the parishes are taken into consideration when decisions are made on the future of the Forest.
