SMITH'S Wood councillor Stephen Holt will be standing down at this week's local elections.
Coun Holt (Green) has represented the ward for the past four years but will not be defending the seat.
Tributes were paid to the outgoing councillor at last week's meeting of the planning committee - his final decision-making session.
All other incumbent councillors representing areas in the north of the borough - Mike Robinson (Castle Bromwich), James Burn (Chelmsley Wood), Debbie Evans (Kingshurst & Fordbridge) and Alison Rolf (Bickenhill) - are seeking re-election.
