The chief executive suspended from Slough BC has left the authority and spoken of her relief that the “stress” of the last six months is at an end.
An extraordinary council meeting, which took place in private on 22 December, had only one item on its agenda – the “severance payment to chief executive”.
Ms Bagley’s departure was confirmed by the council the following day. She had been Slough’s chief executive for more than nine years.
In a statement Ms Bagley said she had been “enormously proud of the role” she had played and added it had been “an absolute privilege to serve the people of the borough and to oversee the scale of change the council and its partners have achieved in service delivery and regeneration”.
Ms Bagley added: “Now is the right time for me to move on and I am very pleased that the stress of the last six months is resolved.”
Sohail Munawar (Lab), Slough’s leader, thanked Ms Bagley for her service and said the council will be appointing a new permanent chief executive in due course.
