Continuity to keep improving services was the key theme as the new executive cabinet at Chorley Council was announced at the annual meeting.

The administration, which took over control of the council two years ago, is pledging to continue focussing on its key priorities by getting people into work, creating a borough where people want to invest and making better use of its assets. The changes to the cabinet saw Coun Paul Walmsley taking on the portfolio that includes development control, and Coun Graham Dunn is now responsible for services including customer services and housing.

Leader of the Council, Coun Alistair Bradley, said: “Chorley is a fantastic place to be and we have made good progress in the last year, with many visible changes happening both in the town centre and across the borough.

“In the next 12 months we want to build on the good work that’s already been done and use the investment in the budget, which now amounts to £4 million over the last two years, to make a difference to people in communities right across the district.”
