Cllr David Green will be joint Vice Chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Panel andCllr Harry Scobie will Chair the Joint Transportation Board.
Cllrs Peter Campbell and John Edwards are now the Vice Chairs of Governance and Audit and Licensing respectively.
Labour Group Leader Clive Hart said "I am absolutely delighted to lead a much larger Labour Group at TDC. The outcome of both the local elections and Thursdays AGM undoubtedly means there will need to be more cross party working at TDC. However, it is very important to understand, this is not a coalition and we in the Labour Group are now stronger, with our own set of very distinct policies that we will pursue".
