Councillor Howe said: “The role I fill as Deputy Mayor of the Combined Authority is taking over an ever-increasing amount of my time and in my opinion should be a full-time role, as it is for the Mayor. The Mayor is fully behind my decision and whilst I do regret that I shall be unable to oversee the programme of reforms I have begun at HDC in the last 15 months, my new full-time role will be an exciting and challenging one.” A new Executive Leader will be appointed next week.
