Following the Lancashire County Council elections in May earlier this year, a number of changes to Wyre’s Cabinet have been made.
Councillor Alan Vincent has been elected Deputy Leader of Lancashire County Council with responsibility for Resources, HR and Property. Councillor Vincent has therefore stepped down as Deputy Leader of Wyre Council and Portfolio Holder for Resources.
Taking his position on Wyre’s Cabinet and Deputy Leader position is Councillor Michael Vincent.
Councillor Alice Collinson has also joined Wyre’s Cabinet as Portfolio Holder for Planning Policy and Economic Development.
Commenting on the changes, Councillor Michael Vincent said, “I sincerely look forward to taking on the role of Deputy Leader at Wyre and working with officers and councillors in my role as Resources Portfolio Holder.
“In my career as a councillor I have been fortunate enough to work on some fantastic projects and I look forward to continuing this as your Deputy Leader.”
Councillor Alan Vincent, commented, “I will deeply miss my role as Wyre’s Deputy Leader and Resources Portfolio Holder, but I look forward to my new role as Deputy Leader of Lancashire County Council.
“I hope that I can help bring about great changes to the whole of Lancashire and add a Wyre perspective to the county’s Cabinet.”
Councillor Alan Vincent remains a Wyre Councillor for the Victoria and Norcross ward.
Councillor Alice Collinson, the new Portfolio Holder for Planning Policy and Economic Development, commented, “I look forward to working with officers and councillors on some fantastic projects including Project Neptune which will see a new fish and food processing facility built on the Fleetwood Docks.
“I previously held the position of Mayor for Wyre from 2017 to 2018 and made great connections with residents across the whole of borough and I look forward to working with them more as your Cabinet member.”
