Cuts-hit Manchester council plans pay rises for two top officials – Manchester Evening News

At the same time one position #8211; of principle development surveyor #8211; will be deleted, saving £63,000, so the person can backfill a more senior role being vacated due to retirement.

His salary would increase by around £2,000 from £72,116 currently to £74,176 initially, with the potential for it to reach £83,830 at the top of the pay bracket.

Meanwhile the council’s Strategic Lead for Residential Growth, Ian Slater, would see his job title bumped up to ‘head of residential growth’, also taking him up a pay bracket.

The town hall #8211; which is facing severe government cuts #8211; believes it needs six more staff to oversee new development, particularly city centre housing, as it looks to grow the economy.
