- Service Delivery Review and Development Committee
Councillor Farrow was due to be appointed district council chairman at the annual meeting on Wednesday, 9th May.
Current chairman, Councillor Sally Townsend, will temporarily remain in office. She said: "I have known Paul for quite a number of years and I helped him a lot in his campaigning to become a councillor for Grange Park.
“He has been a very good councillor and always attended group and council meetings.
“He was a sterling councillor for Grange Park and would have been a wonderful chairman.”
The Editor of AboutMyArea/NN12 notes: "This is very sad news, and a very difficult year for the role, last year Councillor Diana Dallyn was appointed Vice-Chairman but she sadly died last autumn, Paul Farrow had not been in office long and also has just died days before being made Chairman."
