SCARBOROUGH BOROUGH COUNCIL


“WIND ENERGY IS THE WAY FORWARD“


DEREK’S BRIEF: TO DEVELOP STRATEGIC PLANNING (BUSINESS, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY PARKS ETC), EDUCATION AND ALSO TO DEVELOP A SUSTAINABLEWORK FORCE. ALL THE OTHER PORTFOLIOS SIT COMFORTABLYWITHIN THIS REMIT.


DEREK BASTIMAN Councillor, Scarborough Borough


Council (Portfolio Holder for Regeneration)


Derek expanded “My job is to head up the regeneration programme which is a key part of this enthusiastic European award winning council which has, and will continue to deliver, the best for Scarborough Borough. It is, and will remain, at the forefront of the future for Scarborough Borough.”


DEREK’S BACKGROUND Unfortunately, 26 years ago Derek broke his neck in an accident while at work as a site agent for the local authority. Derek recovered following 3 years of hospital treatment, and being a very positive person, decided to change professional direction completely.


He went back to college and studied Business, English and Maths then found work in an estate agents!


Derek has been a Parish Councillor for 26 years and Borough Councillor for 16 years. Some 6 years ago he had the chance to buy out the estate agent in which he worked..... and 3 years ago sold it... at a very opportune time! This gives Derek more time to devote to his council duties, which he thoroughly enjoys.


Derek explained that he was very excited about the opportunities which have presented themselves within the wind energy industry, and that Scarborough Borough Council will lead the regeneration programme – to not be the lead would mean sweeping up what’s left behind, and that is not in Derek’s nature.


“We are leaders, which has been demonstrated by our most recent awards...


• October 2008 NationalWinner – Scarborough the ‘Most Enterprising Town in Britain Award’


• May 2009 EuropeanWinner – Scarborough the ‘European Enterprise Award 2008/9’, beating competition from all over Europe


And we have no hesitation in letting people know that – we are proud of our efforts and we can build on these achievements to realise our ambitions”


“Wind energy is the way forward – I cannot think of anything better, alongside other renewable energies, for the future of energy production in this area and beyond”. Derek concluded.


SUMMARY SELDOM DO YOU SEE SUCH AN ENTHUSIASM.


The work of all the people I met in the Scarborough Borough Council area should be an inspiration to others. They see the potential for their area and they want to shout it out loud.


While also visiting Humberside, Teesside, Norfolk and London we see great enthusiasm throughout the country and we want to play our part in helping everyone communicate their thoughts and ideas, so that we can all learn from each other.
