At the Council AGM on Wednesday, the Brent Council Leadership team was confirmed.
The cabinet has been cut down by 20% to just 8 now. With the Council faced with number reductions at Director and staff level, it was only right that this was reviewed too.
The full cabinet
Leader of the Council – Cllr Muhammed Butt
Deputy Leader – Cllr Michael Pavey
Adults, Health and Wellbeing – Cllr Krupesh Hirani
Children and Young People – Cllr Ruth Moher
Employment and Skills – Cllr Roxanne Mashari
Environment – Cllr Keith Perrin
Regeneration and Housing – Cllr Margaret McLennan
Stronger Communities – Cllr James Denselow
Cllr Kana Neeharathan will be the Mayor of Brent and Cllr Lesley Jones will serve as Deputy Mayor. Chair of Scrutiny is Cllr Aslam Choudry and Cllr Sarah Marquis will now Chair the Planning Committee.
The Tories probably stole the show on the night as it emerged that they would split into two political parties – the Brondesbury Park Conservative Group and the Conservative Party.
It seems bizarre as it was only a couple of weeks ago that residents in Brondesbury Park voted in three Conservative Councillors.
