West Suffolk councils working together

Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council are working together to share services across West Suffolk.

Both councils have their own democratic arrangements, with Cllr John Griffiths the Leader at St Edmundsbury and Cllr James Waters the Leader at Forest Heath.

The two councils share a Chief Executive, Ian Gallin and have a joint leadership team.Staff work across the councils' boundaries. The aim is to save money, at a time when public sector funding is reducing, and increase efficiency, to make it easier for people living and working in West Suffolk to access services.
