Deposed Bath City Council chief executive Clive Abbott, who works his last day for the authority today, has found another job.

Mr Abbott, who was dismissed by the ruling Liberal Democrats in controversial circumstances, is to take up the post of south-west regional director for English Heritage on 30 January.

Mr Abbott said he was looking forward to his new job, which would allow him to get to know the region as a whole. 'The links I have developed with other local authority chief executives and regional organisations such as training and enterprise councils will be very useful,' he said.

His new job involves the management of 100 historic properties in the south-west, maintaining them and making sure they are of interest to local communities, Mr Abbott said.

Despite the controversy and bitterness that Mr Abbott's departure has engendered, he has refused to make any comment on the events of the past three months. Both Mr Abbott and the council have agreed not to make disparaging remarks about the other side as part of the settlement.
