TABLE OF SALARIES

THE latest Town Hall Rich List has been published by the Taxpayers’ Alliance, revealing the highest paid Isle of Wight Council officers.

The list shows chief executive Steve Beynon received a salary of £149,997 during 2010/11, plus expenses of £1,120 and pension contributions of £32,999. His total remuneration was £184,116 compared with £183,937 the previous year.

Former director of children’s and young people’s services Colin Peak, who was made redundant last year, received total remuneration of £156,564, including a salary of £82,754 and statutory compensation following loss of office of £55,621.

Project director for schools re-organisation Janet Newton received the highest amount in expenses, £10,001, which the council said was a single claim for relocation. Her total remuneration was £133,782, including a salary of £101,460 and pension contributions of £22,321.

PFI programme director Jay Jayasundara received the second highest remuneration in the authority, £181,121, including £148,934 salary, £31,900 and £287 expenses.

Strategic director of resources Dave Burbage also features in the list.

Mr Burbage’s controversial contract with the authority, which is paid through his company Dave Burbage Consulting Ltd, amounted to a total salary of £117,193, down from a salary equivalent of £123,745 the previous year, according to the Taxpayers’ Alliance.

Large increases in remuneration figures from 2009-10 to 2010-11, of over 360 per cent, for Miss Newton and Mr Peak, were due to the fact they had not worked a full year in 2009/10, according to IW Council.

Pension contributions for chief fire officer Steve Apter ceased in 2009, which the council said was due to his decision to claim his pension under the nationally agreed terms for the fire service.
