Waveney loses another officer

  • Comment
Troubled Waveney DC has lost another senior officer with the departure of strategic director Louise Jordan-Hall just two weeks after chief executive Glen Garrod left.

Ms Jordan-Hall had been appointed a non-executive director of the Great Yarmouth & Waveney Primary Care Trust (PCT) and a council report on 18 December said Waveney was “fully in support of this appointment”.

Yet three days later a council statement said she would leave on New Year’s Eve.

“This will enable her to take her career in a different direction and to focus on her role as non-executive director with [the PCT],” it said. “Waveney DC will be making no further comment at this time.”

Mr Garrod left by mutual agreement after a highly critical Audit Commission report on the council’s Use of Resources, which followed unfavourable reports on housing and planning (LGC, 13 December).

Waveney’s future is in doubt as Suffolk is subject to a unitary reorganisation review.

This was launched last month by local government minister John Healey after he rejected Ipswich BC’s bid for unitary status.

The Labour oppositions in both Waveney and its Norfolk neighbour Great Yarmouth BC have pressed for the two councils to merge as both are coastal urban areas.
