District council chief executive to stand down

The chief executive of South Holland District Council is to step down.

Anna Graves has held the role at the authority and at Breckland Borough Council for the last six years.

Anna said: “I’ve been working for local government for over 30 years, served many councils and been involved in a huge range of initiatives and great projects working alongside some inspirational people.

“But now I think it’s time for a change so I’ve decided to step down as Joint Chief Executive this autumn.

“This decision is very personal to me and has been brought forward through my experience during the Covid pandemic and reflecting on what’s most important in my life.

“It’s a very challenging decision as I’ve enjoy the depth and variety of my work across two very different councils in quite different counties.

“I’m immensely proud of both councils achievements which have been due to dedicated, committed and fantastic staff, and strong political leadership.”

Leader of South Holland Lord Porter says “Anna leaves both councils in a stronger position to face whatever the future brings along. We will miss her contribution both at a council level but also within Lincolnshire.  I will miss her on a personal level as well as a work one.”
