First unitary and county chief executive share approved

  • Comment

The first agreement to share a chief executive between a unitary and a county council has been rubber-stamped by councillors.

Peterborough City Council’s chief executive Gillian Beasley will start her new role as shared chief executive with Cambridgeshire CC on 19 October.

Members on Peterborough backed the plans last night, while Cambridgeshire’s councillors approved the proposal on 13 October.

The arrangement, which will be in place for an initial 12-month period, follows the appointment of Cambridgeshire’s chief executive Mark Lloyd as chief executive of the Local Government Association.

Peterborough said sharing its chief executive would save the council £110,000 per year.
