Bloke sweep street . . .

Environmental Health Officer . . .

"Place shaping" = new term for re-development. The concept appears to be that an area can be redeveloped without reference to the usual cliches (big shopping centre and a coffee shop). An even better exercise would be to draw up a list of necessary jobs and match them against the silly semi-Orwellian titles they get so we wouldn't have to put up with the weekly complaints from people who don't understand that LA jobs are often named after the funding programme/initiative/law they relate to rather than what they actually do for a living. Its a bit childish really - ooh look mummy, that man has a silly job title (but really he is just an accountant). Local government is of course its own worst enemy in that regard but I think a lot of them know that and don't have any say. Then we could move on to more interesting and useful discussions.

A job list would be a great idea. Every 4 years the list could be put to the electorate for approval.

So 'Place shaping' = Town Planner.

The twilight zone seems to contain a lot of people working on community safety. Is your objection that this should be done solely by the police, or something deeper?

As it happens, I do object to the government's obsession with safety. Safety should not be the job of the goernment or the police (other than for exceptional circumstance). Why do we need nannys to telling us what to do all the time. The government is obsessed with extending life but when people retire they discover that their national insursance payments have been wasted and they are left to grow old in poverty and neglect. Others are quietly snuffed out by dehydration or starvation in hospital.

Dog,

That is one of the funniest i've seen for a while. I would actually be ashamed of myself if place shaping formed any part of my job title. How about GB spends less by sacking all these useless b*stards and then he can keep to his fiscal rules.

i don't see these salaries as excessive compared to what for example an nhs orthodontist was able to get until the new NHS dental contracts came in (300k per year, has probably halved now, some mainstream dentists pull that too) or senior consultant doctors and a lot of GPs who aer on 130k plus.

and there are a hell of a lot of them.

Orwell would be turning in grave at this artilliary against the English Language. The euphemistic dishonesty of council senior position descriptions is becoming epidemic. Almost every high-paid job, and not just in Municipal areas, has an increasingly obfuscating and inflated title. The city is no exception though - just look at the Sunday Times and Times appointments pages for the ultimate in pretentious rubbish for pen pushing jobs. It's all designed to create a two-way pomposity of self-deception: The job seeker is a bean counter but wants to feel he or she is going for a job which hides that prosaic fact, and the job offerer wants re-assurance that its tediously boring company careers make it look like a "creative" and enlightened organisation.

The result is increasingly absurd job descriptions which are designed to inflate the uninflatable. I note that the ceiling of these unclear careers used to hover around the 100k mark but are now regularly hitting 140k and upwards. Something to remember when one visits the council offices to complain about council tax inflation, or reminding city institutions, whose demands that workers keep wage claims sensible, that they might get their own houses in order.

Community safety means anti-crime. We need people telling us what to do because a good 30% of the population are selfish, inconsiderate, thieving, knifing, raping, assaulting, chavs. A cyclist tried to mow me down on the pavement this morning, then called me a w***** when I wouldn't move. I would give every penny I earn in exchange for these people's removal from society, let alone the real scum who inhabit this part of our capital city.

And that is the trouble! You don't see a problem with these salaries when you compare them to other salaries that are financed from the public purse. Just says it all really! :angry:

Try finding a private sector jobs that pay over £100k that doesnt demand blood from you - in addition you do not get gold plated pensions and generous holidays.

Blood suckers now think its normal to suck blood - blow me!

Reuters - 1 hour 44 minutes ago
LONDON (Reuters) - More than a dozen town hall bureaucrats receive higher salaries than Prime Minister Gordon Brown, a survey revealed on Friday.
The number of council executives paid six figure salaries has risen by almost a third, the Taxpayers' Alliance research found.
More than 800 are now paid 100,000 pounds or more, according to the "Town Hall Rich List."
The findings come as many council tax bills are set to rise above the rate of inflation..../

A blast from the past-- I think the above is a couple of months old and the link may no longer be viable. However, I sent this information to my MP to launch a Parliamentary Enquiry. It is still bouncing around and it may be interesting to see where it goes. These people are growing fat on Council Tax hikes that is for sure. The problem is that Councils have no accountability to anyone. Most of the jobs are, I suspect, not actally offered to the general public but are already determined by the old boy network and nepotism. They have to be advertised to meet racial discrimination rules etc. After all, the MPs are paying spouses wages for ficticious work....nepotism gone wild.

The new Chief Exec of Suffolk County Council is on £210k a year...quite a bit more than her predecessor.

In an interview with the local news, she said that she was worth the salary. She's only in her mid 40s FFS! :rolleyes:

Both Norfolk & Suffolk advertised some months ago for a 'Teenage Pregnancy Support Officer' for a wage of £25-30k pa . :blink:

I don't disagree that the application of the safety culture has gone overboard but surely there is a happy medium particularly in respect of workplace safety.

Take this real example.

Restuarant in a small city. Has a kitchen with a preparation area tacked on the back. EHO visits and finds that water boiler flue is vented into an enclosed preparation area - with all the carbon monoxide issues associated. Coincidentially several of the kitchen staff mention persistent headaches.

Owner a complete tosser (drives a Bentley)

Workers too intimidated and poorly educated to tackle him

EHO serves Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 prohibition notice on the restuarant to cease using the boilers until properly flued.

In 12 hours problem fully resolved.

Is this an unreasonable use of power - example of the nanny state?
