ST EDMUNDSBURY Borough Council and Forest Heath District Council have agreed to appoint a single chief executive and shared senior management team in a bid to save £2million.
Both councils have now ratified a process which was agreed at the end of 2010 and have each held meetings to finalise the shared leadership which was announced today.
The new chief executive will be appointed in January at the earliest.
The councils already share several services.
