Coventry City Council’s Cabinet will have a slightly new look for the coming year.
There will be two new faces in the 10-strong Cabinet as the ruling Labour group prepares to meet its “objectives and priorities over the next 12 months.”
Former Chair of Scrutiny Tariq Khan is to become the new Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, replacing Councillor Ed Ruane.
Meanwhile, Cllr Mal Mutton will be the new Cabinet Member for Adult Services, taking over from Cllr Faye Abbott.
Councillor George Duggins, Leader of Coventry City Council, said: “We have achieved a lot over the last 12 months and I’d like to place on record my thanks to Councillors Ed Ruane and Faye Abbott for all of their hard work over the last three years.
“Our new additions join our other experienced Cabinet members, meaning we have a dedicated and talented team in place that is committed to providing quality governance and services to the people of Coventry.
“These are very exciting times for our city but also very tough times for local authorities for reasons that are well documented. I believe these changes will make sure we are well-placed to meet our objectives and priorities over the next 12 months.”
All changes and appointments of chairs to all Coventry City Council committees, will come into effect at Coventry City Council’s Annual Meeting on Thursday 16 May.
