The chief executive of Lichfield DC is to retire after 11 years in post, it has been announced.
Nina Dawes, who was awarded an OBE for services to local government in 2008, is to step down in December after 30 years in local government.
Ms Dawes, left, said: “This has been a difficult decision for me as I love Lichfield district and still feel, as I approach my eleventh year as chief executive, that I have been incredibly privileged to have had this role.
“However, as I approach my 65th birthday, I realise there comes a time when we need to embrace the next phase of our lives. After some 30 years spent working in local government, each of which I hold dear, I feel the time is right to retire.”
