πŸ—³οΈ Council

What my role is

Along with my colleagues Alex Houghton and Josh Payne, I am one of three Councillors for Peartree ward in Southampton. I was elected on 3rd May 2018 with 1,725 votes representing 46.4% of the total votes cast.

Cllr Bell, Cllr Houghton and Cllr Payne

As your representative, I am working hard for the people of Southampton to hold the current Council administration to account for their decisions and to make sure that everyone’s voice is heard in the places it matters most.

I sit on the Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee and have previously sat on the Health Overview and Scrutiny Panel and the Planning and Rights of Way Panel. I am also appointed a Council representative to Southampton Voluntary Services.

You can find out a bit more about me here.

What I can do for you

Please get in touch if you would like to raise any matters of concern. It’s what you elected me to do and I want to help you wherever I can. I've also put together this handy guide to reporting common issues.

I'm very happy to arrange home visits by prior arrangement.
