South Norfolk Council and Broadland DC recruited joint managing director Trevor Holden to replace their respective outgoing chief executives Sandra Dinneen and Phil Kirby.

Mr Holden has been awarded a salary of £160,000 to be split between the two authorities, saving them an average of £39,238. Ms Dinneen was paid £125,976 while Mr Kirby was paid £112,500.

In July, Oxfordshire CC approved a deal with Cherwell DC which saw the district’s chief executive Yvonne Rees take on a joint role with the county council.

Oxfordshire now contributes £116,000 towards Ms Rees’s pay, saving £64,000 on its previous chief executive salary bill.
