Broomhill councillor, Jayne Dunn, has been appointed as the new Cabinet Member for Environment, Recycling and Streetscene.

Councillor Dunn was previously Cabinet Assistant for the Health, Care and Independent Living a position she has held since November 2013, after previously being a member of the transport authority.

She will take over the running of the Streets Ahead project which is transforming the city’s highway network, in addition to this she will be responsible for the waste management service, road safety and the environment.

Jayne was elected as a Councillor for Broomhill in May 2012, defeating former Council Leader Paul Scriven and is highly regarded as a hard-working and effective ward councillor in her local community.

She recently joined the sleepout to raise money for the Roundabout charity and earlier this year she completed a 100km trek through the Sahara desert to raise money for Roundabout and Oxfam.

Councillor Jayne Dunn, Labour Cabinet Member for Environment, Recycling and Streetscene, said:

“It is a privilege to be asked to take on this role and I am committed to making sure that we address the problems with Sheffield’s roads and make sure the Streets Ahead programme makes the difference across the city.”

The vacancy has arisen after Councillor Jack Scott has agreed to stand down from the Cabinet following an issue relating to the recent industrial dispute involving Sheffield’s Household Waste Recycling Centres. As the details of the issue are currently subject to further investigations no further details can be disclosed at this stage.
