Leader and Chairman Re-Elected At Cotswold

Cllr Lynden Stowe and Cllr Sheila Jeffery were re-elected Leader and Chairman of Cotswold District Council respectively at today’s Annual Meeting. (May 8th).

Cllr Stowe, who is now in his third year as Leader, will also continue to chair the Cabinet, which remains unchanged.

Cllr Stowe said after the meeting: “It is an honour to be re-elected as Leader. One of the biggest challenges we will face in the coming year is to keep Council Tax increase down – because there is so much inflation in the economy.

“At the same time, we are looking forward to rolling out our new waste service in full across the District. It will be a giant leap up the recycling ladder, giving us one of the best-performing services in the country. I’m sure that where the Cotswolds leads, others will follow.”

Cllr Jeffery will serve a second year as Chairman, with Cllr Ben Jeffrey re-elected as Vice Chairman.

Cllr Jeffery told the meeting: “It is a privilege to be Chairman of this Council. I’m proud to carry out my civic duties at the many events I’m invited to attend on the Council’s behalf. CDC is held in high esteem and I hope that will continue in the year ahead.”

The Chairmen of the Council’s Overview & Scrutiny, Planning (Regulatory), Licensing and Audit committees also remain unchanged.
