Southampton City 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 develop our local economy, boost jobs, strengthen families, build lasting infrastructure, and to make sure that everyone’s voice is heard in the places it matters most. My particular areas of activity are in IT & digital transformation, transport and economic growth.

I sit on the Children and Families Scrutiny Panel, and have previously sat on the  Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee, 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.

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.
