Latest updates Bristol City Council
Bristol City Council to scrap chief executive role
The role of chief executive at Bristol City Council is to be scrapped.
It's part of a shake-up of the management structure at the authority, set to be announced later by Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees.
The last Chief Executive, Anna Klonowski, resigned from her £160,000-a-year post last month.
Bristol councillors criticise senior management recruitment
Concerns have again been raised, following a critical report from councillors, regarding the senior management roles at Bristol City Council.
Details of the report include:
- Concern about the number of senior managers leaving post
- 14 senior role vacancies, many with temporary appointments at senior management level
- Continued failure to produce a future plan for the council
- Poor communication of detailed information for council departments
- Delays in appointing a new head of paid service and replacement chief executive.
It is expected to be considered at the council cabinet meeting next week.
Conservative councillor Geoff Gollop told BBC Radio Bristol that councillors want to know what the plans are to resolve the council's recruitment issues.

'Miracle' stroke survivor to get new home
The family of "miracle" stroke survivor say the weight of the world has been lifted after their campaign to get the local council to rehome them succeeded.
Janet Gunningham, from Hartcliffe in Bristol, needed to adapt her home and made a video plea to the nation when the prospect of being moved into a nursing home loomed.
But Bristol City Council says a new home, adapted to her needs, has now become available nearby.
