West Sussex County Councillor Peter Catchpole has taken the decision to step down from his position as Lead Cabinet Member for Health and Deputy Leader.

Mr Catchpole has taken the decision for personal reasons.

Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council said: “I am immensely sorry to lose Peter in both roles. Since joining the Cabinet under the previous leader in 2009, Peter has been an exceptional Cabinet Member and through his stewardship the service has gone from strength to strength. He has my thanks for how he steered the service through the implementation of the Social Care Act, particularly support for carers and his determination to ensure that Meals on Wheels remained available for our elderly and vulnerable in West Sussex. He leaves an excellent legacy.”

Future arrangements will be announced in due course.

Mr Catchpole remains as local county councillor for Holbrook.
