The deputy leader of Cambridge City Council and executive councillor for housing has stepped down.

Cllr Kevin Price has resigned from his role as deputy leader of Cambridge City Council, citing “personal reasons”. He has also stepped down from his role as executive councillor for housing.

However, Cllr Price, who represents King’s Hedges ward in Cambridge, will continue to represent his ward as a councillor until 2019.

City council leader Lewis Herbert paid tribute to Cllr Price.

Cllr Herbert said: “I’d like to thank Kevin warmly for his major contributions for Cambridge as executive councillor for housing, including leading on our new council house building programme and in tackling the city’s serious homelessness problem.

“His Labour colleagues also record our gratitude to Kevin for his work as a highly effective deputy leader and as past chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership assembly. I will pay a fuller tribute at the next council meeting.”

The Labour group will meet next week to make appointments to the roles Cllr Price led on.
