Following the local council elections 11 elected members, drawn exclusively from the ranks for the 25-strong Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Independent administration, were named as portfolio holders with responsiblity for service delivery. Councillor Alasdair Hutton was re-elected unamimously as convenor or civic head while councillor David Parker was reappointed council leader.
