A council chief executive's relationship with a directly elected mayor is more important than the one with a council leader, the New Local Government Network claims.

Writing in the latest edition of Focus, the newsletter of the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives & Senior Managers, the NLGN's head of organisation Anna Randle says the relationship between the 11 executive mayors and their chief executives is 'vital'.

'The mayor is very publicly accountable for the delivery of a manifesto, yet dependent on the chief executive for achieving it.

'The relationship can be more personal than under the leader model,' she adds.
