Team to take Cheltenham forward


Cheltenham Liberal Democrats have named a dynamic new top team to take the town forward following the party’s local election success.

 

Cllr Steve Jordan was re-elected as leader of a cabinet that will focus on the economy, housing, green spaces, value for money services and a better deal on local roads.

 

Cllr Chris Coleman was elected deputy leader following the retirement of John Rawson.

 

 

The makeup of the cabinet is as follows:

 

Councillor Steve Jordan, leader of the council - policy, economic development and strategic land use

 

Councillor Andrew McKinlay - Cabinet Member Development and Safety

 

Councillor Chris Coleman - deputy leader and Cabinet Member Clean and Green Environment

 

Councillor Flo Clucas - Cabinet Member Healthy Lifestyles

 

Councillor Peter Jeffries - Cabinet Member Housing

 

Councillor Roger Whyborn - Cabinet Member Corporate Services

 

Councillor Rowena Hay - Cabinet Member Finance

 

Cllr Jordan said: “I would like to thank both John Rawson and Jon Walklett, who has stepped down from the cabinet to assist his recuperation from a recent operation, for all their hard work. I am confident that with our new members, we will be a strong team and make a positive difference in Cheltenham.’’

 

The Liberal Democrats will tackle the key issues for Cheltenham, including:

 

• Keeping a buoyant local economy by building on recent success in attracting major private investment and support for a Business Improvement District.

 

• Working to ensure Cheltenham families have affordable housing while protecting valued green spaces.

 

• Continue running an efficient council so we can best protect local services from government cuts.

 

• Ending the Tory county council's neglect of our roads, pavements and street trees by getting more say for Cheltenham on prioritising these services.
