Cllr Josh Rendall
Lead Member for Local Economy & Employment, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
Cllr Josh Rendall is from Brisbane, Australia, and relocated to Kensington and Chelsea in 2014, where his father was originally from. Josh became involved in politics due to wanting to give back to the community that welcomed him, and was elected as ward councillor for Stanley Ward, in Chelsea, in 2018.
Josh studied law at university and undertook his subsequent legal training in Cambodia, and currently works in the finance sector in London, in addition to his role at Council.
He joined the Leadership Team at the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in 2020 as Lead Member for Family and Children’s Services and following recent local elections in May 2022, took on the role of Lead Member for Local Economy and Employment at the Council.
In Josh’s new portfolio, he is looking forward to delivering a wide-ranging programme of place-based activities for recovery of the borough’s High Streets, town centres and markets after the pandemic, as well as supporting Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) and creating the best built environment in London.
