The Government has set out its clear commitment to improved transparency about how it spends public money. This includes details of the size and shape of public bodies and about the remuneration provided to senior public servants. This is consistent with the Information Commissioners guidance that senior public servants should expect a degree of scrutiny of their remuneration arrangements. The Pay Policy Statement sets out details of the terms and conditions for employees at the council including the details about salaries of senior staff. The organisation chart illustrates how the council is structured.
Below you will find documents relating to senior staff salaries and our organisational chart.
