Cllr Ann John, leader since the 2010 election, will be replaced by Cllr Mohammed Butt. Cllr John has been leader of the Labour Group since 2001. This follows LB Hammersmith & Fulham electing a new leader last week.
Cllr Butt said: “It’s a great responsibility and a huge honour. I will be making many positive changes to make Brent a better place and I am really looking forward to getting started.”
