It follows a similar pattern adopted by the equivalent group at Suffolk County Council, which changes leader each year.

Ms Topping, who has previously been a town councillor for Beccles, said: “Councillor Elliott has done a fantastic job of leading the group since East Suffolk Council was formed, and I feel honoured to follow his tenure.

“As a group we will continue to press for a robust rebuttal of Sizewell C, given the vast impact the project will have.

“We will also work with partners to press for improvements in rural public transport as well as ensuring high quality social housing.”
