The cabinet of Harrow Borough Council have agreed to scrap the role of chief executive.

At a meeting this evening, the Conservative cabinet agreed to delete the role of council chief executive from the authority’s management structure starting from March 1 this year.

The cabinet also agreed to make changes to the management structure of the council which will include one head of paid service with five corporate directors below them.

The decision come after proposals to get rid of the position were first announced last year by leader of the council Susan Hall, who shortly after launched a consultation on the plans.

In November, Harrow Council’s chief executive Michael Lockwood announced he would leave his role after a deal made at a meeting of the chief officer’s employment panel.

Well we should not be surprised by Cllr Hall's decision agree to scrap the role of chief executive after the last chief executive was kicked out on Cllr Halls orders.

Madam Hall is arrogant and does what she wants without thinking of the community and only wants to gain publicity for herself and her political party before the Local elections in May 2014. However, Madam Hall could only do this because the Independent Labour Group sold the community.
