In accordance with Sections 38 – 43 of the Localism Act 2011 the authority is required to produce a policy statement that covers a number of matters concerning the pay of the authority's staff, principally Chief Officers.
This policy was considered and approved by the Full Council at the Budget meeting which took place on 4 February 2016.
This policy statement sets out the arrangements and meets the requirements of the Localism Act. It also complies with the guidance issued by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to which the authority is required to have regard under Section 40 of the Act.
This policy also correlates with the data on pay and reward for staff which the authority publishes under the Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency and the data which is published under The Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations (2011). It should be noted that the requirements to publish data under the Secretary of State guidance, the Code of Practice and the Regulations do differ, the data requirements of the Code of Practice and the Accounts and Audit Regulations are summarised at Annex A to this policy statement.
