Changes to Council Policy and Resources Committee

Council Chambers at the Old Wesleyan Chapel

There’s a change within the group that liaises between Councillors and staff over day-to-day Town Hall operations.

David Pearson has been elected to the Vice Chair of the Policy and Resources committee.

The role was previously held by Councillor Christine Savill. Chris didn’t stand again this year.

David and the re-elected Chair of this committee, Marian Bennett, will work with the council Chair Mike Hicks and Senior Staff on the management committee.

Some people consider Policy and Resources to be one of the most important of committees because it looks after the council’s spending and finances, as well as proposing the Council tax rate.

Marian thanked Councillors for their continued support in this demanding role and she hoped all members will see matters being dealt with positively during the year

David Pearson said he hoped to justify the Councillors’ confidence.
