Last night an informal cabinet meeting took place where the roles and responsibilities of the cabinet members where discussed.  There have been some changes to my brief.  I’ll now be responsbile for Community Services.  That will be all I did before but with the addition of Parks Maintenance and Development, Children’s Trusts and Heritage.

Some of the other members roles where changed about also.  Some people may not like the cabinet structure in a small council like Fylde, but from being on the inside it gives much more direction to officers, it’s more responsive to public concern and it breeds councillors who have a greater understanding of their area of responsibility.
