Council chief executives enjoy pay rises as services are cut

More than half of Britain’s highest paid council bosses gave themselves a pay rise last year despite orders from the Government to slash their salaries, an investigation by The Daily Telegraph has found.

Town Hall chief executives have seen their pay packets rise by as much as £17,000 while cutting front line services, including libraries, care for the elderly and bin collections.

Steve Robinson, the chief executive of Cheshire West and Chester Council, saw his total pay rise by £17,000 to £235,000 last year, including pension and benefits. The average pay packet of the chief executives surveyed was £186,872.

His total packet took him to 14th place in the list of the country’s highest paid council bosses.
