Please note: A number of job titles have changed and the number of named job titles has been slightly reduced since 2010/11. Although the number of unknown job titles costing over £100K has increased.

Total = £2,446,491

Plus 7 an extra unknown job titles



Sub Total unknown £792,500 

Total cost to taxpayers of just 27 people who work/worked for Cheshire West and Chester Council during the financial years 2011/12

£3,238,891

Footnote: If you find an error in my calculations please let me know.

My comment: I find it unusual that as the council shrinks (number of services and staff reduced, including senior staff) year on year it has cost the taxpayer more to employ the CEO, albeit his basic salary remained unchanged.

2090/10 £218,000  2010/11 £235,000  2011/12 £266,000 That's a 22% increase in just 3 years.

Especially since it costs the taxpayers more for the CWaC CEO than it does for the Birmingham CEO which is a much much bigger council.




Supplementary facts

Cheshire West and Chester are,

6th of  38 councils with at least 15 employees receiving more than £100,000 in 2011-12,



3rd on the list of highest costing Council CEOs
