I moved to Northstowe in 2018 and have lived in Cambridgeshire all of my adult life. I work as an IT Solutions Engineer for a multi-national software company, dealing with complex sets of requirements and designing and delivering cost-effective solutions in a timely manner.

I have often been encouraged to take part in local democracy by friends involved in Parish Councils, and the formation of Northstowe Town Council felt like the right time to put myself forward. Areas I am particularly passionate about are open space management and the future of the Greenbelt changes, ensuring that the Town Council can grow other revenue streams beside precept and ensuring that development is of the highest possible quality and the developers meet their Section 106 obligations on time.

Together let's make sure that Northstowe is a great place to live, work and visit.

A very friendly and approachable IT Consultant
who has worked in various civil service departments for around 20 years and
left civil service, to do a Masters in Computer Science.

I moved to Northstowe from London in August 2019 with my husband and son and fell in love with the diverse and growing community here. I have helped set up several clubs and communities in Northstowe and am an active member in all of them.

As a Town Councillor my priorities will be on making Northstowe safer by helping prevent crime, organise events for the community that are affordable by everyone and for all age groups young or old, tackle mental health, domestic violence and work towards the well-being of the community. My focus will also be on sustainability and climate change.

Cllr.Benedicic@northstowetowncouncil.gov.uk

Born and raised in Cambridge, I am familiar with the area and understand the challenges faced by residents across the county. My IT consultancy career has allowed opportunities to live in multiple places and travel the world. This has given me a well-rounded perspective and valuable experience.

We moved to Northstowe to raise our family. As part of that I want to give back to the community and make this new town somewhere residents are proud to live. I am passionate about sustainability, local business and providing services for all residents.

The possibilities for Northstowe are endless and I believe we should all be able to have a voice and shape its future. Ensuring accountability with the developers, making certain that facilities are provided where required, and that the community is given the best chance of success are top priorities for me.

I was raised in Norfolk, but moved to Cambridgeshire in 2012 to work as a history teacher. A few years ago I set up my own business, a bakery and chocolate maker with a kitchen in Oakington. I moved to Northstowe in 2022, attracted by the diversity, the beautiful environment and the chance to be part of building this new community. I put myself forwards for the Town Council because I am passionate that as this town grows, sustainability, social equality and support for the local economy remain at its heart. I bring my business experience to the council so that we can support local small businesses to flourish, particularly through developing the local market. My dream is that Northstowe will have a high street of local, independent businesses in the future.
