Tower Hamlets’ borough chief executive, Will Tuckley, is to leave his role after seven and a half years in a “mutual” agreement with the council. The decision will need to be approved at the full council meeting on 1 March 2023.

During his time as chief executive, Tuckley presided over 10 different elections and oversaw a ‘good’ rating from Ofsted for children’s services. However, his departure comes as the council is under new leadership following the local elections last year.

Aspire, a party founded in 2013 with the majority of its members former Labour councillors, won a majority of seats on the council, taking control from Labour. Aspire’s founder, Lutfur Rahman, also beat the Labour incumbent to become mayor.

Tuckley said: “It has been a privilege to serve the people of Tower Hamlets and work alongside many outstanding staff, members and partners. I am proud of what we have achieved in Tower Hamlets, building more homes and creating more jobs than anywhere else in the country.”

Rahman said: “I would like to thank Will for his seven years of service to the council and to the residents of Tower Hamlets. I wish him every success in his future endeavours.”

Tuckley is currently London’s longest-serving borough chief executive after joining the Bexley LBC in 2008 before moving to Tower Hamlets in 2015.
