She will take up a new role at Wokingham Council in March next year.

Projects begun or advanced under her tenure include the multi-million pound Canal Quarter project and the planned creation of the UK’s second Eden Project in Morecambe.

She said: “During my time at Lancaster we have built a strong foundation for future growth, including strengthening our team, refocusing our services, evolving our marketing, improving our operations, reducing our costs and forging many new partnerships.

“I share a love and respect for this great district and have been privileged to work alongside some amazing people and organisations.

“I wish all staff every success in the future and look forward to seeing the many projects and plans now in place come to fruition during the coming years – I plan to return as a visitor and enjoy all that the district has to offer.”

Council leader Eileen Blamire said Susan had brought tremendous enthusiasm to the council, and had introduced a fresh style of management which had reinvigorated and inspired staff and residents alike.

Plans will now be made for filling the role of chief executive.
