Graham Baxter MBE, the ‘visionary’ leader of North East Derbyshire District Council has been named ‘Council Leader of the Year.’ Click here to read more. NEDDC and Bolsover have announced their strategic alliance to share a chief exectutive and management team to reduce costs.
The rumours that Cllr Watts is spreading that he won’t be standing for election in May because the ‘alliance can’t have two leaders’, is quite frankly ridiculous. The administrative districts and numbers of councillors will stay the same.
