Senior salaries

Local authorities are already required to publish, under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, the following information with regard to senior salaries:

  • 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
  • Employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more must also be identified by name

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.

East Grinstead Town Council has one employee (The Town Clerk) whose salary is greater than £50,000.

The Town Clerk’s salary for 2019/2020 is less than £65,000 but greater than £60,000.

In addition to the above, the Town Clerk receives an annual car allowance of £1,239.
