Changes announced to Waverley’s Executive Committee

The Leader of Waverley Borough Council, Councillor Paul Follows has announced changes to the Executive Committee. Councillor Anne-Marie Rosoman will be stepping down as Portfolio Holder for Housing and Councillor Paul Rivers will join the Executive as Co-Portfolio Holder for Housing (Operations). The role of the Executive is to propose new policy and the budget to the council, and it is made up of ten councillors who each have responsibility for a specific area of work.

The reshuffle will see changes to the responsibilities of a number of the current members, and in recognition of the importance and significance of the housing function, the splitting of the Housing portfolio into two roles – operations and delivery. From Wednesday 19 January 2022, the full current Executive is:

Cllr Paul Follows Leader, responsible for Policy & Governance, Comms, and Emergency Response
Cllr Peter Clark Deputy Leader, responsible for Business Transformation, IT and Customer Services
Cllr Andy MacLeod Portfolio Holder for Enforcement, Operations and Brightwells
Cllr Penny Marriott Portfolio Holder for Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Community Safety
Cllr Mark Merryweather Portfolio Holder for Finance, Assets and Commercial Services
Cllr Kika Mirylees  Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing, Parks and Leisure
Cllr Nick Palmer  Co-Portfolio Holder for Housing (Delivery)
Cllr Paul Rivers  Co-Portfolio Holder for Housing (Operations)
Cllr Liz Townsend  Portfolio Holder for Planning and Economic Development
Cllr Steve Williams  Environment and Sustainability

Cllr Follows said: ”I would like to thank all the Executive Members for their hard work during the last year. I am very proud to lead this multi-party administration, which has achieved so much during this time and has ambitions to achieve even more for our residents moving forward.”

“In particular, I would like to thank Cllr Anne-Marie Rosoman and Cllr Andy Macleod. Cllr Rosoman has sadly taken the decision to step down due to her health. I cannot adequately express what I think we as councillors all owe Anne-Marie in terms of the time, dedication, work, and compassion she has put into the role of Housing Portfolio Holder. There are quite literally hundreds of residents throughout Waverley who I know would second that in a heartbeat. The Executive will simply not be the same without her. Cllr Macleod moves within the Executive to a new, expanded general enforcement remit and I know that we all thank him for his patience, hard work and diligence as Portfolio Holder for Planning since May 2019 and the delivery of our Local Plan Part 2.”
