This is the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Pay Policy Statement, subject to approval by Resolution of the Full Council.
Year on year we have made a commitment to deliver good services that represent value for money by spending every penny of tax payers' money as carefully as if it were our own.
In doing so we have already cut senior councillors' pay and will ruthlessly drive out inefficiency anywhere we find it. We publish all items in excess of £500 online so you, the public, can see where your money goes and help us ensure it is not wasted.
This Annual Pay Statement represents our further commitment to transparency with regard to the policies and procedures used for all our staff. The Statement presents, in one place, the policies and procedures governing the pay and conditions for Chief Officers and the relationship between the highest and lowest paid in the Authority.
The Pay Statement has been written and presented to develop and complement information already published on our website which includes giving the details of job title, grade, salary range, responsibilities, budget, and number of staff reports for all staff earning over £50,000 per annum, and the actual salaries of senior managers.
