Organisation structure and senior salaries

The Transparency Code 2015, published by the Department for Communities and Local Government, sets out what information local authorities must publish about their organisation structure, senior employees and senior salaries.

West Northamptonshire Council has published its organisation structure for the top three management tiers. It is a snapshot of the senior leadership team as at 31 March 2022.

The Senior Salaries information requires the publication of our senior employees whose annual remuneration is £50,000 and above. 

Organisation and salary information is published annually, as required by the Code, and the next full update will be due in June 2023.

In addition, information on our budgets and spend within each of the areas the senior management team manage can be found within the documents on our Statement of Accounts page.
