He replaced Eleri Roberts in recent weeks, having previously been at Hounslow Council, where he led comms for more than two years

Essex County Council chief executive Joanna Killian said: "This is a challenging and important time for the council as we look to radically reform the way we work to enable us to save at least £235m and change the way we support our 1.4 million residents." 

While at Hounslow Allsopp led the borough’s campaigning on the potential expansion of Heathrow Airport, where it called for funding toward improved insulation for schools affected by aircraft noise.

Ian Tompkins, previously interim head of corporate comms at East London NHS Foundation Trust, has stepped in at Hounslow to lead comms on an interim basis.
