Pay policy statement


13.1 The Localism Act 2011 requires relevant authorities to prepare a Pay Policy Statement for each financial year. Our next Statement is scheduled to be for 2023/24 and will be submitted to Council for approval by 31 March 2023.

13.2 If it should be necessary to amend this 2022/23 Statement during the year that it applies, an appropriate resolution will be made by Council.   

13.3 A copy of the Pay Policy will be published on the Council’s website and the Corporate Governance group will be responsible for the implementation and publication of the Pay Policy.

13.4 Paragraph 35 of the Data Transparency Code 2014 requires local authorities to place a link on their website to this published data or place the data itself on its 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.
