Chris Jones, principal projects officer, Monmouthshire CC

WHAT IS YOUR JOB ABOUT?

It is involved in town and community regeneration. Over the past three years my special role has been working with The Three Towns initiative, a targeted council programme to raise health and well-being in our three main market towns. General health indicators show things have improved, though more work is needed.

ANY OTHER PROJECTS?

We are looking at possibilities for bringing quality retail developments into our town centres, creating a new bridge, and at the same time replacing our old cattle markets with a modern market.

WHAT IS YOUR CAREER BACKGROUND?

I worked for Barnet LBC before moving to Monmouth BC in 1992 as a planning technician.

I joined Monmouthshire in 1997. My degree is in urban and regional planning.

HOW DO YOU RELAX?

I am a keen walker, mountaineer and skier. I go skiing twice a year in countries all over the world.

ANYTHING ELSE?

I am vice chairman of the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme's expedition panel in Wales and an assessor for the gold and silver awards in this area.

HOW DO YOU SEE YOUR FUTURE CAREER?

I would like to lead a team of people in a community regeneration programme, preferably in Wales, a country with a healthy, bright future. I like to listen to people, interpret their ideas and make them happen.
