Changes to Cotswolds District Council's Cabinet announced

The leader of Cotswold District Council, councillor Joe Harris, has announced his new Cabinet for the coming year.

Cllr Joe Harris was elected last year for a four-year term and in addition to his duties is also taking on responsibility for the overall coordination of COVID-19 recovery in the district.

The size of the Cabinet has been reduced from nine members to eight. Cllr Mark Harris vacates the Cabinet.

The full cabinet, with portfolios, is:

Cllr Joe Harris: Leader of the Council

Cllr Mike Evemy: Deputy leader and cabinet member for finance

Cllr Rachel Coxcoon: Cabinet member for climate change and forward planning

Cllr Jenny Forde: Cabinet member for health and wellbeing

Cllr Lisa Spivey: Cabinet member for housing and homelessness

Cllr Andrew Doherty: Cabinet member for the environment, waste and recycling

Cllr Tony Dale: Cabinet member for the economy and skills

Cllr Clive Webster: Cabinet member for planning, town and parish councils

Cllr Harris said: "I've been very lucky to have a dynamic and supportive cabinet over the last year and the change of portfolios is intended to clarify roles as we come out of lockdown and into the recovery phase of the coronavirus crisis. 

"We are striving to build a council which delivers for all of our residents and I want to make sure that we have a recovery for all. This is a strong cabinet that will deliver for the district.

"I'd like to say a massive thank you to Cllr Mark Harris, for his work in making our relationship with town and parish councils central to our thinking and for his work on parking across the district."
