The parish council consists of five councillors who are elected every four years. The current parish councillors are:
Mr Nigel Young – Chairperson
On retirement, Sharon and I decided we wanted a character, country cottage to make a new home. We bought Authers in 2014 and after extensive renovation moved from West Sussex to Cotleigh in 2015.
Originally trained in Hotel management I worked in the hospitality business for many years both in the UK and overseas. Later, I changed career path into Facilities Management, managing services and property for large corporate organisations mainly in and around London. We’re now enjoying the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful part of Devon while we work to transform what was a wilderness of a large garden.
Mr Martyn Broom
Mr John Woollacott
Mr Bob Carter
Bob joined the council in May 2018. He retired from the construction industry after working for 40 years. He is concerned about the environment and wildlife. He volunteers for Cats Protection and is coordinator for the Honiton Branch.
