Mid Sussex District Council’s new chairman is Margaret Belsey.
Mrs Belsey (Con, East Grinstead – Ashplats) took over the chain of office from Colin Trumble at the annual meeting of the council on Wednesday (April 28).
She was the only person nominated and said she would wear the chain with ‘great pride’.
She added: “It will be a privilege and a great honour to serve this council and I will do my utmost to fulfil the role to the very best of my ability.”
Robert Salisbury (Con, Cuckfield) will be Mrs Belsey’s vice-chairman. Again, he was the only nominee.
