Prior to becoming an MP he served as a Conservative councillor for Dene Ward in Newcastle upon Tyne, which covered the northern areas of Heaton, parts of Benton and the famous Freeman Hospital. He was also a Chartered Accountant.
Sir Neville was elected as MP for Tynemouth at the February 1974 general election until he retired at the 1997 election. Although his majorities were not huge, he successfully held on to Tynemouth, never being defeated at the polls. In 1992, the year after the Meadow Well Riots in the constituency, his majority was just under six hundred votes. After his retirement, Tynemouth was won by Labour's Alan Campbell.
Trotter is recalled locally principally as a godsend for would-be satirists and vandals as a few strokes of the pen could reduce his name to "Evil Rotter".
