Newry Council Assistant Director retires
Colleagues and Councillors bade farewell to David Shanks, Assistant Director of the Environment, Health & Building Services Department (previously known as the Building Control Department) for 12 years.
Prior to his appointment at Newry & Mourne District Council, David was employed by Down District Council from 1984 – 2000 and his role there was within Building Control. He worked within the South Eastern Group which included working at Lisburn City Council, Castlereagh Council, Ards Council and North Down Council. David’s previous workplaces included working at Councils in Sunderland and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Over the past 12 years while working at Newry & Mourne District Council, David has proven to be an extremely conscientious and hard working individual who has managed the Building Control section extremely well. As a result of David’s dedication, targets are continuing to be met and this was further emphasised when the Department had their Customer Service Excellence assessment last September.
The Building Control Department within Newry & Mourne Council were the first Building Control Department to achieve the Customer Service Excellence Standard – again through the management of David.
With the recent restructuring of the Building Control Department and the Environmental Health Department, David has mentored staff to ensure the transition into the new Department was kept as smooth as possible.
David was wished all the very best for health and happiness in his retirement and was informed that he would be greatly missed, not only by his colleagues at Newry & Mourne but across the Southern Group and further afield.
