Sandwell Council shake-up: Fourth senior officer leave post

News | Published:

A fourth senior officer has left scandal-hit Sandwell Council as the authority continues to shake-up its top tier of management.

Adrian Scarrott has stepped down from his role as director of neighbourhood services, it has been confirmed.

Earlier this year he was criticised for failing in his duties in the infamous Wragge report, which alleged a series of council code of conduct breaches by Councillor Mahboob Hussain.

Jan Britton, Sandwell Council chief executive, said: "Adrian will be leaving the council on December 31 after 30 years serving the residents of Sandwell through the council and previously Sandwell Homes.

"Adrian has been a member of the council's senior leadership team for four years. He will be working on a number of key projects until he leaves."

He is the fourth senior manager to leave the authority since May. They include the council's legal and monitoring officer Neeraj Sharma, who left her post after agreeing a redundancy package with bosses.
