Appointment of Director of Planning and Regeneration
The Committee noted that, in the light of the resignation last year of Chris Mansfield and the termination of the interim arrangements provided by Neil Taylor, the Council had sought to recruit a new Director with responsibility for planning and regeneration.
The vacancy had been advertised on a national basis and a total of nine applications had been received. From those applications, six were assessed as being suitable and were invited to long-list interviews. Following this process, two candidates had been invited to attend for formal interview by the Committee.
Having interviewed the two candidates, the Committee
RESOLVED: That, subject to no well-founded objections being received from the Leader of the Council in accordance with the provisions of the Local Authorities (Standing Orders) (England) Regulations 2001, Tracey Coleman – currently Executive Director of Ebbsfleet Development Corporation at DCLG – be appointed as the Council’s Director of Planning and Regeneration.
Reason for Decision:
To appoint the most suitable candidate as the Council’s new Director of Planning and Regeneration.
