Purpose of Report


To request that the Executive recommend to the Council that the Pay Policy Statement, drafted in compliance of section 38 (1) of the Localism Act 2011, be approved.




That the Council be recommended to approve the Pay Policy Statement for 2022/23.


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected


None.  Section 38 (1) of the Localism Act 2011 requires local authorities to produce a Pay Policy Statement for each financial year.  This must be approved by the Council by 31 March of each year, for it to be effective in the following financial year.


Reasons for the Decision


Each council’s pay policy statement was required to detail the council’s own policies on the pay of its workforce, particularly its senior staff and its lowest paid employees.  The determination of the pay policy statement was reserved for the Council.


The pay policy statement must detail the level and elements of remuneration for chief officers; the remuneration of the lowest paid employee, and the definition of ‘lowest paid employee’; the relationship between the remuneration of chief officers and other officers; and specific aspects of chief officers’ remuneration, including at appointment, increases, termination and any other payments.
