The TaxPayers' Alliance (TPA) proudly presents the sixth Town Hall Rich List, the 'Who's Who' of local government fat cats, detailing the job titles, full remuneration and many of the names of all local council employees earning over £100,000 for the financial year 2010-11. These details have been taken from accounts published by councils themselves.
- There were at least 3,097 council employees who received total remuneration in excess of £100,000 in 2010-11, a 13 per cent increase on the previous year’s 2,696.
- There were 1,146 council employees whose total remuneration was between£90,000 and £99,999 excluding pension contributions. This means that our total of 3,097 is likely to be an underestimate.
- In 2010-11 658 council employees received remuneration between £150,000 and £249,999, up from 575 in 2009-10.
