Cheshire East Council’s investigation and disciplinary committee reconvened today (4 December, 2017) to further consider concerns about officer conduct.
The committee reviewed its previous decisions regarding the chief operating officer and a decision has been taken to suspend him.
The chairman 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 the individual. It would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this stage.”
Appropriate arrangements will be put in place to ensure that the responsibilities of this role are covered.
