Harrow Council’s Top 20 cost £2.2 million per year

A review of the Top 20 earners among Harrow Council’s Officers reveals that they cost the borough in the region of £2,200,000 a year in salaries.

With titles such as “Divisional  Director, Targeted  Services” and “Corporate Director,  Place  Shaping” the full breakdown makes for interesting reading – especially set against the context of the savings that Harrow needs to make over the next few financial years: savings that could end up affecting frontline services.
