Most new council leaders contacted by LGC have pledged to support long-standing chief executives from the previous administrations.

'I see it as an exciting challenge and opportunity', said Worthing BC Chief Executive Michael Ball, who has been in post for six years.

Brian McCluskie, the council's new Liberal Democrat leader, said there would be a review of structure and wide consultations with staff.

Mr Ball had no reason to feel vulnerable, he said.

Bexley LBC has been under Conservative control for 20 years. But Donna Briant, new Labour group leader, said there was no reason for Terry Musgrave to feel vulnerable. 'I don't expect him to want to leave. I don't expect us to want him to leave', she said.

Croydon LBC Labour Leader Mary Walker said David Wechsler, chief executive for two years, was secure.
