Cabinet refresh

Published: Tuesday, 25th September 2018

A new cabinet has been put in place to help strengthen the Royal Borough as it continues its work as a commissioning council.

The changes to cabinet will also reduce the special responsibility allowances which could release funds back into council services of up to approximately £40,000 per annum.  

The changes are:

  • Cllr Lisa Targowska, principal member of HR, Legal and IT has been made a lead member.
  • Cllr Ross McWilliams, principal member for housing becomes a lead member for economic development, property and communications (inc housing).
  • Cllr Christine Bateson and David Hilton retain their principal member roles but the council’s Independent Remuneration Panel have been asked to consider a reduction in their annualised special responsibility allowance.

The leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, Cllr Simon Dudley has also recently taken up the lead member position for Maidenhead regeneration as plans for a new town gather pace.

The moves across the council will ensure that we continue to deliver high quality services to our residents. 

Cllr Simon Dudley, leader of the council said: “These changes will ensure we strengthen and enhance the council and continue to provide high quality services to our residents.

“I’d like to thank Cllr Rankin for his time and effort in his role as lead member for economic development, property and communications and deputy lead member for finance.”

The revised cabinet positions will start immediately. The remaining cabinet positions remain the same.

Cllr Jack Rankin has stepped down from his cabinet positions following his selection as a parliamentary candidate.
