County and district councillor Charmaine Morgan is no longer the Labour group leader for South Kesteven District Council.
Coun Morgan has been replaced by Coun Alan Davidson.
Coun Morgan said fellow Labour councillors suggested she step down because of the extra workload which comes with being a county councillor as well as a district councillor.
She said: “I agreed and I voted for Alan myself because I have got so much on my plate with campaigning work which others are not doing in any big way.”
Coun Morgan is now the Labour group’s deputy leader.
