Nick is only able to assist people who live in the constituency. He is unable to intervene if your problem relates to private disputes with family or neighbours, an employer, or with companies. He is also unable to involve himself in any matters currently before a court or on appeal or relating to a judicial verdict.

Although Nick cannot intervene in local planning matters he is able to bring your concerns to the attention of the appropriate council.

You can read about the local issues which Nick has been getting involved with, and the campaigns he has been running, in his constituency report here.
