Cllr Danson's Register of Interest

About Ed:

Linda and I settled in Wookey Hole in 2003 having previously lived in Kent, Sussex, Lincolnshire, Wiltshire, Norway and Norfolk. Professionally, I am a chartered land & hydrographic surveyor and incorporated civil engineering surveyor, practicing as a consultant and expert witness (mostly retired). It is a career that has taken me to some 50 countries around the world making maps and plans for everything from housing schemes, ocean exploration, environmental impact assessments, to international aid and emergency relief programs in Africa, India, and the Caribbean.

I first joined the parish council at the election of 2011 after witnessing a parish meeting where a hall full of angry residents were expressing their discontent. Then it was quite a different place to the equitable, open and transparent council we enjoy today.Every member brings something special and useful to the council; my contributions are some expertise in boundary and contract law, geomatics, and experience serving on various advisory and industry committees.

My interests are an eclectic mix of authoring professional papers and narrative history books, Egyptian obelisks, scratch-building ship models, positional astronomy, my family of two sons and daughters-in-law, three granddaughter, a great-granddaughter, and our dog Suki the Tibetan Terror.
