A Norfolk district council’s chief executive has announced plans to step down, after six years in the job.
Anna Graves, joint chief executive of Breckland and South Holland Councils, is to step down from her role during the autumn.
Ms Graves said: “This decision is very personal to me and has been brought forward through my experience during the Covid pandemic and reflecting on what’s most important in my life.
“It’s a very challenging decision as I’ve enjoyed the depth and variety of my work across two very different councils in quite different counties.
“I’m immensely proud of both councils’ achievements which have been due to dedicated, committed and fantastic staff, and strong political leadership.”
