The Interim Section 151 Officer presented the Pay Policy Statement 2023/24 for Members’ consideration.


The Executive Committee was informed that there was a legal requirement, under the Localism Act 2011, for the Council to adopt a Pay Policy Statement on an annual basis.  This statement needed to outline the relationships between the lowest and highest paid staff employed by the Council and therefore a breakdown of pay was provided per pay scale, including in respect of the most senior positions.  The remuneration for management graded posts was reviewed by an external assessor. 


Members were informed that in each grade there were a number of scales of pay.  Staff progressed up these scales based on performance which was assessed during annual appraisals.  The Appointments Committee was involved in appointing the most senior staff, including the statutory officer positions of Head of Paid Service, Chief Finance Officer and Monitoring Officer as well as Chief Officer positions.


The report was discussed by Members and it was noted that a typographical error had been made in respect of the title of the report.  It was suggested that this should be addressed prior to the publication of the report for the consideration of Council.




the Pay Policy Statement 2023/24 be approved.
