Camden Council’s cabinet has welcomed one new face for the year ahead following a vote at its annual general meeting.
Kentish Town councillor Meric Apak was elevated to the cabinet on Monday following the resignation of housing chief Cllr Julian Fulbrook.
Cllr Fulbrook, who served as cabinet member for housing for five years, will remain as a councillor but has been replaced as housing chief by Cllr Pat Callaghan who has relinquished her adult social care and health portfolio.
Highgate councillor Sally Gimson has left her sustainability and environment brief to become cabinet member for adult social care and health and will be replaced by Cllr Apak.
Camden Council leader Cllr Sarah Hayward said: “I have tried to minimise changes. I think it takes time to learn to become a cabinet member. I was happy with last year’s cabinet and we have a great cabinet this year.”
