Changes at Rushcliffe Borough Council as Leader steps down

Rushcliffe Borough Council 24th May 2017
 

Following his success in the Nottinghamshire County Council Elections earlier this month, the Leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council, Councillor Neil Clarke MBE has announced he is stepping down as Leader.

Cllr Clarke has led the Conservative-run authority since May 2005 and is also chairman of the District Councilís Network (DCN) and vice-chairman of East Midlands Councils.

He was first elected to the borough council in 1986 and will continue to represent the Radcliffe on Trent ward as a borough councillor. He said:

ďIím proud to have represented Rushcliffe on both a local and national level for the past twelve years but the time is right for me to step down as Leader. This year has seen us move into the brand new Rushcliffe Arena and, with the new building, comes a new chapter in the Councilís history, which is why Iíve decided to hand over the reins to someone else.

ďThe borough has an excellent reputation for achievement and I know that my successor will want to ensure this is continued. I decided that, following the previous good practice of former leaders, we should implement succession planning in the handover of leadership to ensure the Council continues to deliver for its residents.Ē

Cllr Clarke continued: ďI was delighted to have been recently elected to Nottinghamshire County Council and Iím looking forward to the new challenge that this brings. I wish to thank the hardworking staff of the council, along with my fellow councillors and the many partners Iíve worked with over the past twelve years as Leader for their support, hard work and close working relationships, especially in the tough economic climate weíve faced in recent years.Ē

The Council is holding its annual Council meeting on Thursday 25 May and a new Council Leader will be chosen then.
