NEW! Advice Note on Working Hours

Time Published 4 August 2021

Ian Smith, SLCC National Employment Advisor, has produced a new advice note on working hours of the proper officer/clerk.

Following a survey of our members in England and Wales in 2013, SLCC convened a working group to consider the survey findings. The group examined the differences between ‘basic duties’ and ‘additional duties’, the internal/external factors that can affect the role, and the number of hours recommended to fulfil this work. A full copy of this report is available on request from SLCC, advice@slcc.co.uk.  A further survey was carried out in 2021 to update these findings, taking into account increased demands including the proliferation of email communications and the popularity of neighbourhood plans.
