Cllr Zoe Nolan, Vice Chair of the Parish, was elected following a by-election in July 2013. She was elected as a Milton Keynes Borough Councillor for Loughton and Shenley ward in 2014 and serves on the cabinet with responsibility for Children and Families including schools and children in care.
She came to live in the Parish in 1992, with her husband Paul and their young family. Their children attended local play groups and schools. In 2017 Zoe retired from the NHS where she was a Consultant Psychologist working with teams and families in the Midlands. She lives in Great Holm with her husband who is retired and is a school governor.
Zoe was drawn into local politics when defending our open spaces. She successfully opposed building plans on the edge of Lodge Lake and provided evidence and spoke out for the establishment of a permanent village green in Great Holm. Like many residents she enjoys the lake, walking or running with her dog around it most days. She continues to work to enhance our enjoyment of this lovely area.
She is committed to building on the work of the Parish Council, communicating more with people living and working in the Parish. Additionally, as a Milton Keynes Councillor she is able to work effectively between the Parish and Milton Keynes Council. She is keen to engage residents in the politics of local issues so their views are always taken into account. She led the campaign to stop the closure of Great Holm fire station. She has been active in the successful refurbishment of many of the playparks in our area.
Zoe is excited to be your Councillor in the area she lives and loves, welcoming contact and feedback about your concerns and where you want to see the Parish and Milton Keynes Council put in more effort.
