A leading councillor has quit his Hampshire County Council Cabinet position five days after being found in breach of the councillor’s code of conduct.
Hampshire County Council says Sean Woodward quit his role as Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage with immediate effect “citing personal reasons and pressure of work.”
Woodward, who has been a member of the County Council since 2005, will remain a county councillor. He is also the leader of Fareham Borough Council.
The Leader of Hampshire County Council Councillor Keith Mans said: “Earlier today, I accepted the formal resignation of Cllr Sean Woodward from his role on Cabinet. I wish to thank Sean for his support to my Cabinet. I will be announcing his replacement in the next day or so.”
