Salhouse Parish Council

The Role of a Councillor


A Councillor is a member of the Council and is normally elected for a term of four years.  People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a Councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their Parish Council work. A Councillor is an unpaid voluntary role, however the Parish Clerk is a salaried employee.

They are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected Councillors depends on the size of the area. In Salhouse we are able to have11 Councillors.


Local Councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. The term ‘local council’ is synonymous with ‘Parish Council’, ‘Town Council’ and ‘Community Council’.

The current Parish Councillors for Salhouse are listed below. If you wish to make contact with any parish councillor, please do so firstly via the Clerk.

There are currently 4 vacancies for Parish Councillors. If you are interested and would like to find out more, please contact the Clerk.

For a list of Parish Councillor's Interests, please visit Broadland District Council Parish and Town Council Register of Interests page.

The Parish Council, for 2022-23, has four working groups:  Playing Field Management Group (PFMG), Asset of Community Value (ACV), Highways & Flooding and Emergency working group.

Working groups can include members of the public.  If you would like to be a member of one of the working groups, please contact the Parish Clerk.

Salhouse Parish Councillors

Bob Cooper - Chair

I have lived in Salhouse for most of my life and will do my best for the village. Times have changed a great deal in recent years and are only going to get tougher, I will try my best to look after this village along with the rest of you all.  



David Framcomb - Vice Chair

I have lived in the village for four years, moving from Bradwell near Great Yarmouth to be closer to my daughters. Since moving here I have realised Salhouse is a wonderful and friendly village and became a Councillor to contribute to its preservation and future.

I am retired and use to work for Royal Mail for over thirty years, I have an interest in classic cars and model railways.

Councillor Julie Redburn

Julie Redburn

I have lived in Salhouse for the last 38 years and prior to that 6 years in Norwich.  I moved to Norfolk when I married in 1974 and consider myself a local, having spent two thirds of my life here.  I am retired and feel that the time has come to take a more active role in the life of the parish.  However, I was active during my children's education being Treasurer for Salhouse Playgroup, a member of Salhouse V.C. PTA and later Broadland High School PTA.  

My interests are walking, gardening, cooking and reading.  Several friends and I have recently started The Salhouse Bell Reading Group.

I have been living in Salhouse for the last 16 years after moving from Little Plumstead. I am an artist who specialises in large sculptural works utilising materials that are discarded and redundant. My work reflects man’s wastefulness and misuse of the planet.

My particular interests in the Parish Council are the environment, conservation area, rights of way and encouraging social cohesion.

Councillor Lynn Yallop

Lynn Yallop

I have lived in Broadland all my life; before moving to Salhouse in November 2018, I lived a stones throw away in Brundall, so I really appreciate local village/parish life.  I have a real passion for making a difference in the community with which I live; in my day job as a director of a big 4 firm, I lead all or Corporate Social Responsibility activity across East Anglia and I also hold the role as Chair of the Trustee Board for the Mid Norfolk and North Suffolk RSPCA branch.   Personally, I am a huge advocate of animal welfare and have somehow ended up with 11 rescue cats.   The sense of community within Salhouse is amazing and I very much look forward to continue being part of that.
