A RESHUFFLE of Powys County Council Cabinet responsibilities has been completed by the Leader of the Council, Cllr Rosemarie Harris.

The changes, which affect all service areas, have been confirmed after the resignation of two cabinet members last week.

Councillor Rosemarie Harris said: “The changes that I am announcing today will come into force with immediate effect and are designed to give cabinet members new challenges and wider experience of all council operations.

“The cabinet will continue for the time being with eight members with some changes necessary in portfolio holder responsibilities.

“We have a significant agenda as a cabinet. As a number of strategic programmes start to gather pace I will be keeping the number of cabinet members under review and may seek to increase the number to 10 in due course.”
