Concerns about officer conduct have been considered at a meeting of the investigation and disciplinary committee on April 10-11, 2017.
A decision has been taken to suspend the chief executive of Cheshire East Council while an independent investigation is undertaken.
The chair of the investigation and disciplinary committee, said:
“We would stress that suspension is a neutral act taken in the interests of both the council and chief executive.
“It is important that this investigation is undertaken objectively and therefore it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this stage.”
