Continuity to keep improving services was the key theme as the new executive cabinet at Chorley Council was announced at the annual


The administration, which took over control of the council two years ago, is pledging to continue focusing on its key priorities by getting people into work, creating a borough where people want to invest and making better use of its assets.

The changes to the cabinet saw Coun Paul Walmsley taking on the portfolio that includes development control, and Coun Graham Dunn is now responsible for services including customer services and housing.

Leader of the Council, Coun Alistair Bradley, said: With Coun Edgerley stepping down, this was the perfect opportunity to look at the portfolios again and we’ve aligned them with our priorities so that we can be in the best position possible to deliver what the people of Chorley want.

“A key focus will be helping those who are finding times particularly difficult at the moment through their financial situation, while continuing to make things happen in the borough by getting on and doing things.

“Chorley is a fantastic place to be and we have made good progress in the last year with many visible changes happening both in the town centre and across the borough.”
