IPSWICH councillor Paul West is standing down from the county cabinet because of pressure of work.

Mr West is responsible for the Greenest Council policy at the county, and has been a member of the cabinet since he was elected to the county in June last year.

He said: “It's been a real privilege to hold this Portfolio. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have relished the challenges involved in working to make Suffolk the Greenest County.

“But unfortunately, the demands on my time are too great at present, and so I have reluctantly decided to step down from the role.
