Nicky is a vocal critic of the Cinderford Northern Quarter development and one of her ambitions in becoming a councillor is to influence forward planning policy in the district to take more account of wildlife. She is delighted to serve the vibrant communities in the Newnham ward.
Nicky Packer was born in Wiltshire, then moved to London to college and then to work. She was delighted to be able to move to Gloucestershire, the county of her father's birth, in 1999. She has lived in Ruspidge since 2009.
Working as an architectural technician has given Nicky a wide experience of the planning system. While living in London, she successfully challenged development plans. This led to the creation of a community wildlife park and the creation of a wildlife corridor and community footpath.
Nicky has often challenged inappropriate developments in the Forest of Dean.
