Consider Notice of Motion in the following terms:-
“This motion requests that East Renfrewshire Council instruct officers to proactively seek Fields in Trust status for the recreational area commonly known as the 'lower playing fields and woods' (Area 2 - see attached Map) that adjoin the existing King George V Playing Field (Giffnock), known as ‘Huntly Park’ (Area 1 - see attached Map).

Huntly Park was transferred by the First District Council to itself as trustees for King George’s Field Foundation (King George V pitches).

This dedicates the area in all time coming for the purposes of a playing field for public recreation.

Under the terms of the agreement, no buildings shall be erected except residences for park keepers, gardeners or pavilions, dressing rooms or shelters in connection with recreation purposes and East Renfrewshire Council cannot sell or dispose of any part without consent of Scottish Committee of the National Playing Fields Association.

The lower playing fields and associated woods are not afforded the same protection leaving them to an uncertain future, where their inestimable value as a resource that has helped and may continue to help underpin the health and wellbeing of countless generations, remains under constant threat of development in pursuit of the short-term interests of just one”

Submitted by Councillor Wallace and Councillor Grant.

7. Statements by Conveners/Representatives on Joint Boards/Committees.

8. Equality and Human Rights Mainstreaming – Report by Deputy Chief Executive (copy attached, pages).

East Renfrewshire Council defends bumper pay packets

By Norman Silvester Reporter

East Renfrewshire Council has defended bumper six-figure salaries paid to senior officials last year.

Campaign group the TaxPayers’ Alliance revealed that eight senior members of staff at the local authority earned more than £100,000.

The figures were included in a report titled ‘Town Hall Rich List,’ which looked at the pay packets of all council bosses across Britain.

According to the TaxPayers’ Alliance, the biggest earner at East Renfrewshire last year was chief executive Lorraine McMillan, who was paid £147,780.

She was followed by Julie Murray, chief officer of the East Renfrewshire Integration Joint Board, on £132,268.

Deputy chief executive Caroline Innes Innes was the third highest earner, at £130,769.

A council spokesperson told the Barrhead News: “We are absolutely focused on delivering the best services possible for our residents and, like all councils, have made significant efficiencies in recent years.

“In Scotland, the salaries for local government chief executives are set nationally and are based on an assessment of the role and responsibilities and the required skills and qualifications.

“Senior management salaries are then set as a percentage of the salary of the chief executive.

“During these extremely challenging times, it is more important than ever that we have highly-skilled leaders helping us to ensure the council adapts and continues to deliver vital frontline services as best as we possibly can.”

Among the five other officials at East Renfrewshire Council listed by the TaxPayers’ Alliance was former director of education Mhairi Shaw, who earned £130,424.

Director of environment Andrew Cahill was paid £130,414, while Margaret McCrossan, head of accounts and financial officer, was paid £115,515 and chief social work officer Kate Rocks received £106,173.

The lowest paid of the eight was Anthony McReavy, chief executive of East Renfreshire Culture and Leisure, who was on £106,172.

Their remuneration packages included pension contributions from the council.

John O’Connell, TaxPayers’ Alliance chief executive, said: “At the onset of the pandemic, thousands of town hall officials were taking home huge sums.

“Many staff will have more than earned their keep but these figures shine a light on bosses and will allow residents to hold to account those who are not delivering value for money.”]]>
