(A report of Rob Barlow, Chief Executive)

Additional documents:


The Leader of the Council presented a report by the Chief Executive which sought approval for the updated Pay Policy Statement for 2023/2024 and Pay Policy Statement for 2024/2025.


Members noted that under section 38 of the Localism Act 2011, a Pay Policy Statement was required to be produced annually and must be approved by Council. This had been a requirement since 2012/2013. The Pay Policy Statement, once approved, had to be published on the Council’s website by 31st March 2024.


The Leader advised that time had been taken to produce the report in order to reflect best practice and include any updates from the past year.


Councillor James Cantwell queried whether the alignment of officer costs would result in an increased cost to the Council. The Leader advised that any costs would be met within the budget.


Councillor Stephen Woodliffe highlighted an error in the final page of Appendix A which referred to ‘her Majesty’s Revenues & Customs’. The Leader advised that the document would be corrected prior to publication.


The recommendations were moved by Councillor Anne Dorrian and seconded by Councillor Dale Broughton.




1)    That the updated Pay Policy Statement 2023/2024, attached as Appendix A within the report, be approved; and


2)    That the Pay Policy Statement 2024/2025, attached as Appendix B within the report, be approved.
