Modernisation tops the agenda for newly elected Isle of Anglesey County Council Leader, Phil Fowlie, with social justice and customer care highlighted as priorities for the new Executive Committee.
In a meeting with senior Council officers Cllr Fowlie revealed full details of his newly appointed cabinet and stressed that the group will also be looking at equality and anti-poverty as important issues.
The Leader also said that the ruling group, consisting of the Original Independents and Plaid Cymru, will be working as a team to achieve results for Anglesey. Cllr Fowlie's own responsibilities as leader include key projects such as Môn a Menai Board, the north west Wales Spatial Plan, North Wales Regional Partnership Board as well as issues such as the future of Wylfa Power Station.
Councillor Fowlie said: "This is an exciting time for Anglesey and I look forward to making key changes to ensure we as a Council deliver results for the residents and businesses of the island. As an Executive Committee we will give priority to the modernisation agenda as well as building on some of the successes of the previous administration."
