Pay policy statement and pay multiples

The Localism Act 2011, together with the Local Government Transparency Code (2014) requires local authorities to produce Pay Policy Statements.

The Pay Policy Statement sets out the council's pay policies for the financial year 2015-2016 relating to the:

  • remuneration of chief officers
  • remuneration of the lowest paid employees
  • relationship between the remuneration of the chief officers and employees who are not chief officers

Pay Multiples are also included in this section as a way of illustrating our approach to pay dispersion.

In many cases the pay arrangements are the same for all employees.
