Neil Williamson
Town Councillor
Neil is a chartered Civil Engineer, graduating from Swansea University back in 1972. He Initially worked for major international contractors (his first site experience was in Zambia!) before entering the world of specialist contracting in 1983 and subsequently starting his own specialist consultancy in 1994. As the business grew he was lucky enough to travel extensively throughout the world prior to selling the business in 2013. Now semi-retired, and is keeping his hand in with some ad hoc consultancy work. Neil has been married for over 40years moving to Framlingham in 2020, from the Suffolk/Norfolk border near Diss. he is a keen Classic Car enthusiast, particularly American cars, and enjoys watching all kinds of sports including (for his sins) being an Ipswich Town season-ticket holder. He has always loved travelling and been to some wonderful places. By joining the Town Council I hope in some small way to help in making Framlingham a great place to live in and for new people like myself to want to move to and stay in.

You dont have to be a Councillor!

Would you be willing to join a group of people the Town Council can draw on for advice and help to realise its projects?
We would like to engage with a wide range of residents as we develop and action future plans for the town.  You can register with us, letting us know of your availability, skills, enthusiasm and knowledge.  You can be single, a parent, and of any age – perhaps you are a student or retired, or you work in sports, health, education, hospitality, or perhaps you just want to get involved in improving our town.

The town’s new 5 year Strategic Plan outlines our new objectives and priorities for Framlingham including important issues like climate change, protecting our environment, community engagement, and the need to carry out a review of the Neighbourhood Plan.

We have funds to spend on improving the town, and we also need admin help, such as social media communication and events development. There are many ways you can help.

We need people to help us achieve these plans and would like to hear from anyone interested.
There are so many talented, skilled people in Framlingham and working together is a key to our success.

If you want to be involved please contact:
