Changes at Cotswold District Council

Cotswold District Council Conservative Group elected a new Leader, Councillor Lynden Stowe, at its Annual General Meeting last night (Tues). Councillor Stowe is currently Finance Portfolio Holder in the Council cabinet and had been widely tipped to take over from Julie Girling following her decision to resign from the post.

Councillor Stowe said: “I am very keen to carry on the good work that Julie has been doing as Leader of the Group, there are many challenges facing the Council, as well as the continuing financial constraints there is the threat from government of a pointless and expensive reorganisation. I am delighted that the Conservative Group has decided to put me forward as its nomination for Leader of Council next month.”

Councillor Girling said:“ I am very pleased that the Group have unanimously supported Lynden to take over from me as leader, he is very capable and dedicated, I am sure he will serve the Community well. I have enjoyed the last three years as Leader of the Group and of CDC and feel it is time to move on now to new challenges. I look forward to continuing to serve as a member of the Council and in my role as a County Councillor.”
