Appointment of Director of Environment
Appendices 7-10 to follow - OPQ Assessments
The Committee noted that, in the light of the recent appointment of James Whiteman as the Council’s new Managing Director with effect from 1 June 2017, the Council had sought to recruit a new Director of Environment, who would be part of the Council’s Corporate Management Team.
