Council Reshuffle Set To Save Money

Council reshuffle Council reshuffle


A RESHUFFLE of senior management at Barnsley Council will save the authority more than £200,000 a year.
 
The top two tiers of management have been streamlined to create 'more robust leadership', an official report says.

It means the post of deputy chief executive has been deleted along with five assistant director posts across the Children, Young People and Families department as well as Adults and Communities and the Development, Environment and Culture departments.

However, the authority's chief executive, Diana Terris, has warned further efficiencies need to be found across the council's workforce to protect front-line services amid pressures to make further cuts to future budgets.

The authority's current management set up costs £2,310,000 but the reshuffle brings that figure down to £2,090,000.

"The restructure and streamlining of roles as a result of the review of senior management capacity for 2013/14 will save approximately £220,000," said Ms Terris.

Woo hoo, it took a while but finally some top heavy wate has been stripped. They could save another 150,000 a year in one fell swoop by getting rid of ms terris. I don't understand the need for a chief executive as barnsley is not a huge council.
