Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for your email just to clarify I would like:

1) Consultation costs ie one off payments for each project

and

2) Consultant fees which are paid on a continual monthly basis for non council employees (ie self employed) these people tend to be in high profile positions and demand very big money an example might be your Executive Director for Property and Housing Assets (name withheld). I understand this person has been there for around 18mths and earning circa £250k a year. My understanding there are many such consultants working within the council and I would like details of such people and the costs to the tax payer.

Look forward to receiving the information required

Yours sincerely,

Ray Clarke
