We have received the sad news of the death of our colleague Arthur Anderson, a valued member of the Strategic Place Planning team who had given 39-years of service.
Arthur, an application support assistant, passed away at the weekend and I know it is an incredibly difficult time for all those who worked alongside him. A death in the Council family is always felt deeply and there is support available to anyone affected.
On behalf of the Council, my condolences go to family members and all who knew Arthur.
Colleagues speak of a quiet man who was warmly regarded and highly respected as an important member of the team.
It was touching to hear those closest to Arthur at the Council saying that he would have wanted everyone to stand together and help each other out, which is exactly what the team are doing at this difficult time.
