The leader of the council is councillor Rob Bird (Con) and the Deputy Leader is councillor Jim Mason (Con).

Lead member portfolios

We have an executive committee of 11 members. One member is the leader of the council and the other ten have a specific area of interest (known as a portfolio) and are known as lead members.

The leader of the council is the Chair of the executive committee and the deputy leader is the Vice-chair.

The scope of the portfolios and number and names of lead members on the executive committee is determined at the annual council meeting in May.
