Chief Executive

7.1 The Chief Executive is the Council’s Head of Paid Service.  There are three incremental points in the Chief Executive grade. 

7.2 The Chief Executive also receives a Returning Officer fee in respect of Borough and Parish Council Elections. The fees are currently £325 for each contested ward and £81.5 for each uncontested ward, and £269 for each contested Town/Parish ward and £67 for each uncontested Town/Parish ward. If a Town/Parish ward is contested along with a Borough ward the fee is £378 for the first Borough ward that is combined with a Parish ward election where one Borough Councillor is being elected.  Fees for conducting Parliamentary Elections, Referendums, European and Police and Crime Commissioners are determined by way of a Statutory Instrument.
