He has wide-ranging transport experience including highway design, traffic engineering and management, transport and land-use planning and road safety.

Throughout his professional career on behalf of industrial, commercial and residential developers, land owners, public bodies, community groups and private individuals Stuart has been involved in highways and traffic related matters connected with development projects and highway improvement schemes, and has, as a consequence of a number of these schemes, been involved in the preparation and presentation of evidence at planning inquiries on numerous occasions.
Stuart completed the Great North Run in 2014, but after an initial flirtation with the idea of running a full marathon in 2015, has now resigned himself to running the odd 5k during the summer months.
