Senior salaries

23 February 2015

In accordance with the Local Government Transparency Code we are required to publish the following information:


Local authorities are already required to publish, under the Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2011 (Statutory Instrument 2011/817) 29:


  • the number of employees whose remuneration in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000
  • details of remuneration and job title of certain senior employees whose salary is at least £50,000, and
  • employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more must also be identified by name.


This information can be found in our statement of accounts.

In addition to this requirement, local authorities must place a link on their website to these published data or place the data itself on their website, together with a list of responsibilities (for example, the services and functions they are responsible for, budget held and number of staff) and details of bonuses and ‘benefits-in-kind’, for all employees whose salary exceeds £50,000.


The key differences between the requirements under this Code and the Regulations referred to above is the addition of a list of responsibilities, the inclusion of bonus details for all senior employees whose salary exceeds £50,000 and publication of the data on the authority’s website.
