Our Councillors

Dennis Wells (Vice-Chair)

Originally born in Birmingham I spent many years in Australia. I have been a Mulbarton resident since 2006. After attending a couple of Parish Council meetings in 2022 I realised how short-handed the Parish Council has been. I joined in January 2023 to make my contribution to the community. I am a

member of the Mulbarton Church, the Community Speedwatch Group, the Mulbarton Allotments & Leisure Gardeners Association and was a volunteer marshall and occasional run director for the Mulbarton Parkrun.

I have lived in Mulbarton since 2010 with my three sons who grew up in the village. Two of my sons worked for a number of years in the local village shops and also played for Mulbarton Wanderers FC. I have joined the Parish Council in the village that I have made my home to help continue to make Mulbarton a lovely place to live.

I've lived in the village for almost forty years and in recent times I've been involved with Mulbarton Wanderers FC - coaching many young people and being an organiser of the annual Mulbarton Festival. When I was told about a need for new Councillors, I decided to join to try to make a positive difference for the whole community. I'm married with three boys, keen on many types of fitness and wellbeing, and in my spare time I run the family business.

Adam Banham (Chair)

I moved to the village in 2009 with my then partner, and we got married in Mulbarton Church in 2012.  Since then, a couple of children have come along, and I can often be found taking the kids to the various parks around the village.
I joined the Parish Council in 2016 and enjoy most working with fellow residents to help make our fantastic village even better than it already is.

Adam is a member of the open spaces and play areas working group.

I have lived in the village with my wife Elaine for the last 40 years. I am now retired having worked for British Telecom and the Broads Authority. I am proud to have served on the Parish Council on a number of occasions having recently returned after a short break. I greatly enjoy living in Mulbarton and I am very keen to help maintain its identity as a village and for it not to become just another dormitory suburb of Norwich.
My other interests include crewing and helping to maintain the Norfolk Sailing Wherries. Ham Radio – I am a licenced operator, Classic Cars and exploring the UK and mainland Europe with my wife in our motorhome.

The Role of a Councillor


They are elected to represent the interest 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 Mulbarton we are able to have 13 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'.


Local Councils are made up of locally elected Councillors. They are legally obliged to hold at least four meetings a year.  Most meet on a monthly cycle to discuss council business and hear from local residents.  District and County Councillors regularly attend parish meetings and report at the Annual Parish meeting. Councillors are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis.​

Councillors must abide by a Code of Conduct, a set of rules on how Councillors are expected to behave. They must also declare their financial interests in the parish, details of which are kept by the District Council.
