The Civic Leader is the Civic Head of the Council. Already elected by the public, he or she is then elected by other councillors to become Civic Leader. The current Civic Leader is Councillor John Cowe (Independent).
Leader of the Council
The Leader of the Council is an elected member who has been selected by Members of the Council. The current Leader is Councillor Kathleen Robertson (Scottish Conservative and Unionist).
The responsibilities of the Leader of the Council transcend those of individual members of the Council – and the particular service responsibilities of other individual Chairs – and extend to corporate responsibility for the vision, policies, strategies and consequent decisions of the whole Council.
