Haverhill town clerk Will Austin has resigned after almost three years in the role.
Mr Austin, from Devon, succeeded Gordon Mussett in the role in 2011, but has now departed ‘due to personal reasons’.
“I would like to place on record my sincerest thanks to council staff and town councillors, who have made this such an enjoyable and satisfying role for me,” he said.
“Particular thanks go to the town mayor Roger André and Cllr Maureen Byrne, deputy mayor and chair of the council’s personnel committee, who have been hugely supportive during my time in Haverhill.
“It is with great regret that I am leaving having developed a very strong affinity with a town that I am proud to have called home.”
Will leaves his post in March, and arrangements for the recruitment of a replacement are already under way.
