Steve Allen gets new council role
Thorney councillor Steve Allen is the new Cabinet Member for Housing, Culture and Recreation on Peterborough City Council, following a reshuffle.
The Conservative group lost their slim majority on the city council in the elections this month, but stay in charge following a deal with the Werrington independent councillors.
A press statement said: “Homelessness and rough sleeping is an absolute priority of this administration, and so Steve’s portfolio has been expanded to give a focus to this.
“Cllr Allen also retains responsibility, for ensuring that arts, culture and recreation thrive in this city, which was part of his previous role as a Cabinet Advisor.”
