2019 Town Hall Rich List Roadshow: Essex
The average council tax bill has gone up by more than £900 in the last 20 years and spending has gone through the roof. Councils are trying to plug their financial blackholes through tax rises and cuts to public services, rather than scaling back the pay packets of council staff.
The local authority with the greatest number of employees receiving remuneration in excess of £100,000 was Essex council with 55 employees in total earning over this amount. Essex also had the highest number of employees earning over £150,000 at 13.
We will be raising awareness on the Chelmsford High Street about just how many employees are earning over £100,000.
You can read our leaflet to find out more.
