A local authority hit by the loss of senior officers to a neighbouring council is to launch a review of its management structure.
The move by North Norfolk District Council follows the poaching of three of its bosses by Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
Chief executive Sheila Oxtoby, head of human resources Julie Cooke and head of finance Karen Sly had been working for both councils as part of a shared services agreement.
NNDC Cabinet members voted last week to end the arrangement, which had been running since November.
Now the authority is set to launch a strategic business review to consider its future management structure.
