The Council considered the report of the Director – Governance & Organisational Development which sought approval of the Pay Policy Statement for 2021/22. In accordance with Section 38(1) of the Localism Act 2011, the Council was required to produce a Pay Policy Statement for each financial year. The Pay Policy Statement set out the authority’s policies for the financial year relating to:
• the remuneration of the authority’s lowest-paid employees (together with a definition of “lowest-paid employees”) and the reasons for adopting that definition;
• the relationship between remuneration of Chief Officers and that of other officers (pay multiples); and
• the remuneration of Chief Officers.
The report summarised the minimal changes to the Statement and it was noted that given the Trade Unions had yet to present a pay claim for 2021/22, the document showed pay scales as of April 2020.
The Policy & Finance Committee, at their meeting held on 22 February 2021, recommended the Pay Policy Statement to the Council for adoption.
AGREED (unanimously) that the Pay Policy Statement 2021/22 be approved.
