Reduction in senior posts saves 150,000 Pounds

A reduction in senior management posts at Cotswold District Council is to save 150,000 Pounds a year, it was announced this week.

The Council has decided not to replace the Deputy Chief Executive, who is leaving for a new job. The senior team has been reduced by a further post through a re-organisation of environment and community services.

Council Leader Cllr Lynden Stowe said: "Whenever a member of the senior management team leaves, we take the opportunity to look at our management structure as services evolve and staffing requirements change over time.

"The saving of �150,000 will help the Council to meet its financial targets and keep our share of the council tax bill as low as possible."

* Deputy Chief Executive Andrew Grant leaves the Council next month to become Chief Executive of Aylesbury Vale District Council.

Cllr Stowe said: "The Council would like to thank Andrew for all his work and achievements during his nine years with us and wish him well for his future career in Buckinghamshire."
