The Leader of The District Council , Terry Cutmore, has made some changes to the council cabinet.
You can find the full details on addendum 1 of this document here
However the new cabinet is as follows:
Leader- Terry Cutmore (Ashingdon and Canewdon ward )
Deputy Leader, and Planning and Transportation – Keith Hudson (Hockley Central ward )
Council Tax Collection, Benefits and Strategic Housing Functions – Malcolm Maddocks (Hockey West ward )
Environment – Michael Steptoe (Barling and Sutton ward)
Finance and Resources – Colin Seagers (Great Wakering and Foulness ward)
Leisure, Tourism, Heritage, the Arts, Culture and Business – Keith Gordon (Rochford ward )
Service Development/Improvement & Performance Management -Gill Lucas-Gill (Rochford ward )
Young Persons, Adult Services, Community Care and Well-Being, Health and Community Safety – Jo McPherson (Hawkwell North ward)
The most notable single change is that Mavis Webster has stepped down as Deputy Leader and left the cabinet.
However the biggest overall change is that there are now no Rayleigh councillors at all in the cabinet. And because the leader won’t allow non-members to speak, that means no Rayleigh councillor can take part when the the cabinet are discussing the really big issues.
Astonishing and worrying from a Rayleigh point of view.
