Westminster's new chief revealed

  • Comment

Stuart Love is set to become Westminster City Council’s new chief executive, having won the unanimous approval of the authority’s appointments committee.

Mr Love, currently Westminster’s interim chief, previously headed the council’s city management and communities department. He has also been its head of road management.

Subject to approval by full council on 24 January, he will succeed Charlie Parker, who has become chief executive of the States of Jersey.

Westminster leader Nickie Aiken (Con) said: “The field for chief executive was an incredibly strong one. But throughout what was a rigorous interview process, Stuart clearly emerged as the candidate best able to deliver on our ambitious City for All programme.

“He is respected by members and officers alike and has an innate grasp of what makes Westminster tick. We look forward to Stuart leading the officers and delivering on the members’ vision.”

Mr Love said: “It is an absolute honour to have been offered the top job at Westminster. The officers are among the best you will find anywhere and the authority rightfully has a reputation for innovation and high performance.

“My task now is to build on that and, working with the leader and cabinet, ensure that we improve the lives of our residents and build a city for all.”
