New interim chief planned for Doncaster Council

2 June 2010

Communities secretary Eric Pickles is set to appoint a new interim chief executive to take the reigns at Doncaster Council.

According to reports, the minister will make an announcement in parliament later today (June 2nd), setting out his intervention plans for the struggling local authority.

Doncaster Council was labelled the worst in the country in April following a damning report from the Audit Commission, which strongly criticised the organisation's political leadership.

Mr Pickles is expected to announce the appointment of a new interim chief executive for the next 18 months and confirm plans for a team of commissioners to mentor councillors and officials.

The council's current interim leader Jo Miller told the Local Government Chronicle she expects to stay on until the end of June, when the new chief executive will take over.

Ms Miller arrived in Doncaster last month on a temporary secondment from her role as deputy chief executive of the Local Government Association.
