Book of Condolence in memory of Paul Sanderson


It was with great sadness on Monday when we heard the news that Paul Sanderson, our previous Strategic Director for Place Services, sadly passed away on Sunday 19 July.

Paul had worked for the council for 25 years, as the Director for Environmental Protection and latterly as Strategic Director for Place.  He was Deputy Chief Executive and acting Chief Executive before his retirement, supporting the council through a period of significant change.

Paul retired at the end of October last year, but came back on a consultancy basis to oversee a Place project, before finally leaving the council in February 2020.

Paul was well liked and respected by all at the council, those who knew him and had the pleasure of working with him over the years are saddened and shocked. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and his family, and we would welcome your kind comments and thoughts to pass on to them.

In memory of Paul Sanderson
