Cabinet restructure supports economic growth
The structure of the Council's Cabinet has been changed to place an even greater focus on supporting economic growth.
A new Finance and Performance Cabinet position has been created to allow the Cabinet Member for Economic Growth to spend more time developing the local economy. The Cabinet now comprises the Leader and six portfolio holders and Councillor Judy Llewellyn-Burke has taken on the new role of Cabinet Member for Finance and Performance.
The new structure will enable Councillor Ash-Edwards to dedicate more time, and focus more council resources, on helping the Mid Sussex economy thrive. The next 5-10 years are going to be a really important period of growth for Mid Sussex. It is essential that we secure the right level of infrastructure funding to accompany this new development and our new Cabinet structure will enable us to spend more time lobbying national Government for extra money that will ensure all future growth is sustainable.
The Cabinet is now as follows: Leader - Councillor Garry Wall
Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economic Growth - Councillor Jonathan Ash-Edwards
Cabinet Member for Finance and Performance - Councillor Judy Llewellyn-Burke
Cabinet Member for Service Delivery - Councillor Gary Marsh
Cabinet Member for Customer Services - Councillor Mandy Thomas-Atkin
Cabinet Member for Community - Councillor Norman Webster
Cabinet Member for Housing & Planning - Councillor Andrew MacNaughton
Councillor Bruce Forbes has been re-elected as Chairman and will hold the position for the next 12 months, during the civic year that runs until next May. Councillor Colin Trumble has been elected as the new Vice-Chairman.
