Labour has unveiled its new Haringey cabinet – and it includes a councillor from the west of the borough for the first time in almost a decade.

Cllr Jason Arthur, who was elected as a Labour councillor in Crouch End in May, has been named cabinet member for resources and culture in the new nine-strong executive.

Cllr Arthur’s cabinet position has been created by splitting Cllr Joe Goldberg’s portfolio, meaning there is now an extra seat in the cabinet.

The 26-year-old is clearly delighted with his new role, tweeting: “Excited to have been appointed on to Haringey Council’s cabinet last night. Going to be a steep learning curve but up for the challenge.”

The majority of the cabinet – which will be formally ratified at next week’s Full Council meeting – remains largely unchanged.

Cllr Claire Kober is still leader of the council, while Cllr Bernice Vanier is deputy leader, and member for communities.

Cllr Alan Strickland keeps his role as member for housing and regeneration, Cllr Goldberg’s portfolio is largely unchanged as economic development, social inclusion and sustainability and Cllr Ann Waters holds onto children and families.

There are three other new faces: Cllr Ali Demirci is promoted from planning chairman to cabinet member for planning, Cllr Stuart McNamara is now cabinet member for environment and new St Ann’s councillor is Peter Morton is named the member for health and wellbeing.
