The Parish Council co-opted Joel as a councillor in July 2021 & he has joined the Planning Committee. He has lived in West Bergholt with his wife and son since 2017.
He is a Director and Partner of a PR and consultation agency which specialises in the built environment. Prior to working in this sector, he spent several years working in Parliament in Westminster and similar work with District Councils.
Following a public notice published by Colchester Borough Council, no election to fill this vacancy has been requested by the electors within this parish. Therefore, the Parish Council will fill the vacancy by the process of co-option.
If you are interested in being co-opted as a Parish Councillor, then we would like to hear from you, please contact the Chairman or Clerk for further details. Familiarisation sessions will be arranged, and should there be more than one person interested, selection would be made by a vote of the Parish Council as required by the regulations.
