Cllr Elliott, Cabinet Member
for Digital and Technology
Following the recent election of the new Leader of the Council, Cllr Paul Hodgins, he has announced that Cllr Gareth Elliott is to be promoted to the Cabinet as Member for Digital and Technology. Cllr Elliott will work to further develop the Council’s own digital projects, as well as develop further opportunities for technology to enhance the lives of residents around the borough.

Cllr Gareth Elliott said: 

"It is with great pride that I have been selected to serve on the Cabinet and to lead on Digital and Technology. I believe strongly that technology can not only assist greatly in the provision of services but can also provide real opportunities to benefits the lives of residents. I look forward to starting in my new role".

Cllr Healy, Chairman of the
Conservative Group of Councillors
In addition to new appointments to the Cabinet the Conservative Group of Councillors are also pleased to announce the election of Cllr Healy as their new Chairman. Cllr Healy will work closely with the new Leader and Councillors across the Borough.

Cllr Healy said:

“I am equally proud to be elected to serve the Borough’s Conservative Councillors as Group Chair. It’s especially pleasing that two Whitton Councillors have been selected for senior roles, as its not many years ago that Whitton was seemingly forgotten by the then Council.”
