Introduction

The Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2011 (Statutory Instrument 2011/817) requires local authorities to publish

  • The number of employees whose salary in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000
  • Details of salary and job title of certain senior employees whose salary is at least £50,000
  • Employees whose salaries are £150,000 or more must also be identified by name

In addition, the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 requires us to publish a list of responsibilities and details of bonuses and ‘benefits in kind’ for all employees whose salary exceeds £50,000.
