Ex-environment minister heads LWaRB

Former environment minister Richard Tracey is the new chair of the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWaRB).

Tracey replaces James Cleverly, who announced in May he was leaving to lead the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority.

The AM for Merton and Wandsworth was a MP for 14 years and served as an environment minister in the Thatcher Government and was also a member of the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee.

As LWARB chair he will spend at least one day a week working for the board which has £26.3m of funding at its disposal for the next four years.

Tracey earns £53,439 as a AM and will receive £15,000 per annum for the new role which runs from 11 August to 7 May 2016.

A job description drawn up by LWARB said that chairman was required to:

Lead the overall strategic direction of LWaRB within the policy and resources framework determined by the Mayor of London’s Municipal Waste Management Strategy and Spatial Development Plan (the London Plan)

Promote the LWaRB’s vision, values and culture and to help ensure the implementation of the Board’s Business Plan

Provide strategic leadership in decisions on the allocation of the London Waste and Recycling Fund (LWARB)
