Drive down local authority costs

Comment 7th July 2010

It's known that a County Council such as Denbighshire spends approximately 60% of its entire income on paying its own wages, salaries, expenses and bonuses.

Use the ratio of income to wages as a measure of performance. The lower the overheads of paying itself, the higher the proportion of income will be spent on frontline services. It will be a sound guide to tackling waste and inefficiency in local government.

Why does this matter?

Waste in local government is possibly even greater than Whitehall, and far less accountable.
