Mr Savage's theme for the year, called Youth and the Future, will see him working to support young people entering education and employment and support potential mergers between services with neighbouring Breckland Council.
'I find the youth endlessly challenging, endlessly interesting and I look forward to seeing what we can do for the youth in our programme this coming year,' he said.
