Stratford-on-Avon District Council aims to ensure that its remuneration packages are fair, equitable and transparent, leading to the employment of professional staff who have appropriate skills and experience to provide quality services to its residents and visitors.

Under section 112 of the Local Government Act 1972, the council has the “power to appoint officers on such reasonable terms and conditions as the authority thinks fit". This Pay Policy Statement (the ‘statement') sets out the council's approach to pay policy in accordance with the requirements of Section 38 of the Localism Act 2011.

The purpose of the statement is to provide transparency with regard to the council's approach to setting the pay of its employees by identifying:

  • The methods by which salaries of employees are determined;
  • The detail and level of remuneration of its most senior staff, i.e. ‘chief officers', as defined by the relevant legislation; and
  • The committee responsible for ensuring the provisions set out in this statement are applied consistently throughout the council and recommending any amendments to the full Council.
