Kevin Bartle has been appointed as the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Director of Finance and its Section 151 officer.

Mr Bartle had previously worked for Haringey and joined the Royal Borough on an interim basis in November 2015.

Nicholas Holgate, Town Clerk, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Kevin as a permanent member of the team and my successor as Section 151 officer.

“He has already served the borough well and possesses all the necessary skills and experience to guide us through further challenging times ahead.”

Section 151 of the Local Government Act 1972 requires the officer to report to various parties if the Council attempts to set an unbalanced budget.
