Surrey pledge exec shake-up

Surrey County Council’s likely future Conservative leader has promised a radical shake-up of the council’s executive should his party retain control of the one-star authority following the June elections.

Andrew Povey , who is expected to replace outgoing leader Nick Skellett (Con) after elections in June, proposed a new executive which would see just four out of the 10 current members remaining in their posts.

The move follows the council’s announcement this month that Trafford MBC chief executive David McNulty was to take the council’s vacant top job.

Cllr Povey said: “We already know there will be a new chief executive and a new way of running the council following changes in legislation. This is as good a time as any for a new leader to make changes to the political management of the council.”
