Two dozen employees at Tower Hamlets Council raked in more than £100,000 in 2016/17, figures reveal.
Eight received bumper pay packages greater than £150,000, according to a libertarian pressure group.
The TaxPayers’ Alliance, who compiled the figures, said an unnamed “corporate director of communities, localities and culture” received £236,777 compensation for loss of office that financial year, on top of a £34,090 salary.
Only two members of staff were named: chief executive Will Tuckley, who received £227,659; and Graham White, now Chelmsford City Council’s interim legal and democratic services manager: £111,978.
The pair were among more than 400 employees handed sums greater than £100,000 across London, the data show.
