Emma Boon, of The TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “This shows that the schemes should be reformed.”
John O’Connell, research director of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “This huge pay-off will infuriate the taxpayers who have to pick up the bill, particularly because of the short amount of time that the managing director was in post.
“What’s equally frustrating is that the council initially refused to provide this information. Local authorities must become more transparent to the ordinary families whose council tax has almost doubled over the last decade.
“In the future, it’s crucial that taxpayers are not held to ransom because of poorly-drawn-up contracts, and the senior public sector merry-go-round must grind to an immediate halt.”
