Harrow Council’s new Corp Director of Community Announced

Harrow Council has announced (page 6, here) that it is to appoint Mr Paul Walker (pictured), currently working as an Interim consultant at Rossendale Borough Council, as the new Corporate Director of Community.

Mr Walker was previously Chief Executive of Copeland Borough Council when his role was made redundant in a shake-up for the council’s management team in October 2015, saving the council over £142,000 per year (source here). No doubt the £120,000 pay-off will have softened the blow somewhat. Walker was the only member of the management team who lost his job, although the mayor said at the time the decision was “purely economic and strategic and is no reflection on Mr Walker’s work”.

Prior to his five years at Copeland, Walker spent some six year in a variety of roles at Blackpool Council. Walker obtained his masters at the University of Central Lancashire.
