Councillor Michael Rand, who has been vice chairman for two years, was voted into the position at a meeting last night (Wednesday).

He replaces fellow Conservative councillor Derrick Isham.

Mr Rand said: “I’m very pleased and honoured to be here.

“Thank you very much for electing me to office.”

The chairman, a non-political figure, is a ceremonial post, representing the authority at various events and chairing full council meetings.

Councillor Jenny Bloom was elected as the new vice-chairman.
