Council Services:

Leading from the front

The top team at Lincolnshire County Council is hard at work after the election, making key decisions about local services

The Conservatives were returned as the largest political group at the polls in May, with 58 out of 70 seats.

At the first full council meeting following the vote, Cllr Martin Hill was re-appointed leader. He also oversees resources and communications. The other key members of the decision-making executive - with their areas of responsibility - are:

  • Cllr Patricia Bradwell - deputy leader, adult care, health and
  • children’s services
  • Cllr Eddy Poll - commercial and environmental management
  • Cllr Barry Young - community safety and people management
  • Cllr Nick Worth - culture and emergency services
  • Cllr Colin Davie - economy and place
  • Cllr Richard Davies - highways, transport and IT
  • Cllr Sue Woolley - NHS liaison and community engagement

Away from the executive, backbench members from all political groups play a vital role on committees scrutinising the council’s work.

They’re also the first point of contact for residents in their area with issues and concerns, however they voted.

Serving Lincolnshire

The new chairman of Lincolnshire County Council has been chosen by his colleagues.

Cllr Andrew Hagues, who represents Sleaford Rural and lives in Leasingham, has been a member of the authority for six years.

Following his election to the post, he said: “I’m keen to ensure a fair and unbiased debate in the council chamber, and to represent the county council by promoting Lincolnshire.

“I’m also looking forward to serving the residents of Lincolnshire and meeting people and visiting organisations around the county.”

In his new role, Cllr Hagues - supported by his wife, Lucille, as chairman’s lady - will be raising money and awareness for his chosen charity, The Community Larder.

Before becoming chairman, Cllr Hagues served as vice-chairman - a post now held by the new deputy, Cllr Ron Oxby, who represents Potterhanworth and Coleby.
