Councillor Mike Young Elected as Chair of Licensing

Councillor Mike Young was elected to the position of Chair of Licensing on Thursday, 13th September 2018 at the first full council meeting after summer recess. Cllr Young said;


I am incredibly happy to have been elected unopposed to this position and of course to have been chosen to sit on the other six committees presented by the Chief Executives in her management report yesterday. I have agreed with my full-time employer a flexible working arrangement that will allow me to attend a large proportion of the meetings scheduled.


Cllr Brenda Loynes, Group Leader for the Conservative Party and Chair of Audit & Governance said that she was extremely happy to have supported Cllr Young and was not surprised that he was elected unopposed.

The full council meeting was convened at 7pm on Thursday and all of the business was concluded by 7.19pm – some say in record time. Hartlepool Conservative Association would like to congratulate Mike on his successful first two months of office and that they are incredibly pleased with the work he has undertaken and the enthusiasm he has shown in all projects and ward work.

Cllr Young will also sit as a committee member on:

Cleveland Fire Authority Committee
