Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Community Services submitted a report that Committee consider payment of an honorarium to a member of the Grounds Maintenance staff who had carried out extra duties arising from the vacant Head Gardener Post.


The factors to be considered when assessing the application were set out in the report. The report also noted that the Council’s general terms and conditions of employment recognised that it was appropriate to recognise the contribution made by staff who cover the duties of another more senior post for more than 4 weeks.


It was estimated that the member of Grounds Maintenance staff had carried out 75% of the Head Gardner’s duties therefore the report requested an honorarium of 75% of the difference in salary between the two posts totalling £691.98 gross payable.




Agree to an Honorarium payment as set out in the report.
