The Leader, Councillor Rosemarie Harris thanked Councillor Weale and Councillor Hayes for their contribution to the cabinet.
"I thank Martin and Stephen for their work and wish them well for the future.
"Their resignations give me an opportunity to review cabinet portfolio responsibilities as part of a business case to ensure we have the right balance for the council's operating structure," she said.
"I will make a further announcement within a few days. I have been considering expanding the cabinet for a while and I am preparing a business case to be considered by the Council's Democratic Services Committee, to add an additional two members to the cabinet - one from the Independent Group and one from the Conservative group," she added.
