The chief executive of Rotherham Council is to retire after five years.

Mike Cuff, 59, started the job in 2004 and supported the council through many projects including the rejuvenation plans for Rotherham town centre.

Mr Cuff said: "I have been privileged to have played a part in helping Rotherham move forward."

A council spokesman said: "We will be very sorry to see Mike go because he has worked very hard for this authority and for the people of Rotherham."

Mr Cuff said the town is a "great place with great people".

"Private and voluntary sectors, I have no doubt, will continue to work together to make the improvements that local residents and businesses want to see despite the current challenging times," he said.
