A new chairman has been selected at Tendring District Council (TDC) following the annual meeting.
At Tuesday night’s meeting (27 April), full council voted for Cllr Jeff Bray to be chairman. Cllr Bray had been vice-chairman for the past two years, and replaces outgoing chairman Cllr Dan Land.
Councillor Peter Harris was elected to serve as vice-chairman.
As well as presiding over TDC full council meetings, the chairman is a ceremonial role and represents the council and district at civic events.
A minute’s silence was also held at the meeting in honour of the late Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.
