Stephen is married to Caroline and they have two young children. Stephen has lived in Chester since the mid-1990s and is well known across the city. After Stephen's son received a bicycle for Christmas 2005, Stephen started accompanying him on frequent bicycle rides across the area (fair weather only!). Stephen also spends his free time looking after his children's Malawi Cichlid tropical fish and, after his children have gone to bed, reading and spending quality time with his wife.
Stephen was elected onto Chester City Council in 2000 and represented the Handbridge & St Mary's ward until 2009. He was re-elected in 2004, gaining the largest number of votes ever obtained in the ward.

As well as being Deputy Leader of the Council, Stephen was also the Executive Member for Customer Services.
Between 2005 and 2009 Stephen was elected to represent the Chester Overleigh Division on Cheshire County Council and was Chairman of the Health & Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee, Vice-chairman of the Community Services Scrutiny Committee and a member of the Cheshire Fire Authority.
