Two Eastleigh Councillors swap roles in the Lib Dem team leading the Council 

Cllr Paul Bicknell will hand over chairing the Eastleigh Local Area Committee to Cllr Steve Sollitt, who will in turn hand over his Cabinet role for Social Policy to Paul Bicknell.

The role swap will provide both councillors with the opportunity to build on their experience and give them an insight into different aspects of running the Council.

Council Leader Keith House commented, “Both Paul and Steve play significant roles in the team and their idea of a job swap that will last at least until May, will draw on their combined experience.  Steve previously chaired the Local Area Committee in the early 2000s, and Paul has always had a keen eye for policy detail and strategy.”
