The leader of Broadland District Council has been re-elected to the role for the eighth year in a row.
Conservative Andrew Proctor will continue in the role which he has held since succeeding Simon Woodbridge in 2011, following tonight’s annual meeting of the Tory-controlled authority.
Mr Proctor, who represents Brundall at Broadland and Blofield and Brundall at Norfolk County Council, said: “It is a real privilege to be leader and it is an honour to be re-elected for the eighth consecutive year.
“I am extremely proud to work for and represent the Broadland area. These are exciting times for our district and we will continue looking forward and planning for a future that benefits residents.”
Judy Leggett, who represents Sprowston East, was appointed chairman, taking over from David Ward. Mr Ward presented a cheque of £1,500 to Age UK Norfolk, his charity during his chairmanship.
