Councillor Charlie McCoubrey was elected Leader of Conwy County Borough Council today (19 May 2022).

He has appointed the following councillors to his Cabinet:

Cllr Emily Owen: Housing and Regulatory and Deputy Leader

Cllr Mike Priestley: Finance, Revenue and Benefits

Cllr McCoubrey said: “This new Cabinet is a coalition of 10 members: 6 members of the Conwy First Independent Group, 2 members of Welsh Labour and 2 from Plaid Cymru.

“In making these appointments, I have had the benefit of discussions with group Leaders and many members. I believe that I have been able to achieve an appropriate balance of political alignment, diversity, language and the geography of the county borough.

“I have also taken into account the strengths and capabilities of the members who have put themselves forward for appointment in order to create a Cabinet that is ready and able to meet the challenges and opportunities that face the Council and the people and businesses of Conwy.”
