Another senior officer has left Cheshire East Council (CEC) as a result of the Lyme Green fiasco.
Lisa Quinn, Director of Finance and Business Services, has left the Council today by mutual agreement.
She had been suspended from work pending further action in January, following a meeting of the Lyme Green staffing sub-committee.
Councillor Michael Jones, Leader of Cheshire East Council, said: "Lisa Quinn, Director of Finance and Business Services, left the Council's employment on Friday, February 15, by mutual agreement. This follows the departure of two senior managers during December.
"Arrangements are already in place to cover her role, while the Council continues with the planned introduction of a new management framework, which will be less opaque, more accountable and effective and less costly.
"I would like to thank Lisa for her hard work and commitment to the job during her time at Cheshire East and I wish her well for the future."
Lisa Quinn is the third senior officer to leave Cheshire East Council following the DIP's (Designated Independent Person) report into the causes of the failure of the Lyme Green development project.
John Nicholson, Strategic Director Places and Organisational Capacity, and Caroline Elwood, Borough Solicitor, whose actions were also examined by the DIP, resigned in December - just days after the confidential report was passed to the Council's staffing sub committee for consideration.
Councillor Rod Menlove, also resigned from his role as Environment Portfolio Holder, in January - as a result of the Lyme Green debacle.
The Council's aborted plans to build a recycling station at Lyme Green Depot in Macclesfield have cost Cheshire East taxpayers in excess of £800,000, they broke planning rules, as the main contractor commenced work on the site before planning permission had been granted, and officers did not comply with EU Procurement Regulations.
Cheshire East Council were due to make a final decision today, Friday 15th February, as to whether to disclose the report into the Lyme Green fiasco - as soon as we receive confirmation of their decision we will publish an update.
