Message from the Leader - June
Following the elections on 3rd May, Mole Valley District Council changed from being a Council with a Conservative majority to what's known as a Council in "No Overall Control". Conservatives remain the largest Party on the Council with 20 seats (down from 21) but, together, the other two Parties, have 21 seats - the Liberal Democrats have 14 (up from 13) and the Informal Independent Group have seven.
As Leader of the Council, I believe that my responsibility is to ensure that we remain a high performing Council and continue to focus on doing our very best for all our residents. With that in mind, following the election, I spoke with the Leaders of the other Parties to discuss how we could work together collaboratively in the interests of our residents.
Cllr Michael new
Earlier in the year, the Council approved a 2018/19 budget that not only maintained services but continued to increase the Council's investment in the services that are essential to our most vulnerable residents such as housing, community transport and telecare. In the knowledge that we will continue to face some very significant challenges to our finances, the Budget also sought to secure the Council's financial stability for the next three years. This new Cabinet contains a valuable mix of new skills and experience and I firmly believe that, by combining forces in this way, we are well placed to continue the Council's strong record of delivering the services Mole Valley residents expect and deserve.
You can find more details of the new Cabinet here.
