How we work
The council is a large organisation, delivering over two hundred and fifty services - from keeping the pavements clean and managing parking, to maintaining roads and running children’s centres. See how different areas of the council fit together
We believe that it is important to be open and transparent about what we pay our chief executive and senior officers. On this page you can view a document which sets out the pay and benefits the top 169 officers receive for the role they play in running the City of Westminster.
As part of our complex organisation, officers are collectively responsible for a budget of almost £1 billion and for the delivery of hundreds of services in the heart of London. Their efforts have helped us consistently levy the lowest or second lowest council tax in England since the current system of local taxation was introduced in 1993.
As an ambitious team, we are proud to have been endorsed by the Audit Commission as one of the most efficient and high performing councils in the country. We continue to believe that to employ the best people and get the best results for the many residents, businesses and visitors in our Living City, we must be prepared to pay competitive salaries.
If you have any questions about our executive pay, you can contact our media team on 020 7641 2259.

You can also view the details of the top 25 pension reserves for Westminster City Council staff. These figures do not represent the level of funding any individual will receive, but rather how much the pension fund must hold to meet the life time commitments of the pension holder.
We own and lease a range of properties across the city. View a list of the operational properties the council owns (i.e. non-housing properties) and a short description about what they are used for.
