TOP JOBS TARGETTED IN SHEPWAY  SHAKE UP

Top council executives are facing redundancy after an agreement was reached to restructure the local authority.

Chief Executive of Shepway District Council Alistair Stewart said: "Currently some senior officers are at risk of redundancy following agreement to restructure the council.

"The restructuring is being carried out with a view to making significant savings in the revenue budget".

When asked to clarify the costs of the exercise to the Authority, a Shepway Council spokesman said: "More than £300,000 will be taken from reserves in the current financial year.

"The savings made in the revenue budget will be between £150,000 and £200,000, depending on how much the council wishes to put back into the reserves".
