COMMENTING on research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), which shows that city workers' pay has risen by 7% in a year, compared to a growth of 2% across the UK as a whole, Dave Prentis, UNISON's General Secretary, said:- "Public sector workers facing pay freezes, job losses and rising inflation will be stunned to hear that pay in the City has rocketed by nearly four times the national average. The financial sector is doing very nicely in this recession while, in the real world, low-paid families are left to pick up the pieces. It cannot be right that the sector that caused the recession can continue with this champagne lifestyle, while the economy goes from bad to worse. The Government has abandoned any attempt at fairness, by taking the easy option to cut deep the public sector, while dodging decisions about clamping down on the bonus culture and making everyone pay their fair share."

New Regeneration Director for Liverpool appointed

NICK Kavanagh has been appointed as Liverpool City Council’s new Director for Regeneration and Employment.

The 41 year old, who joined the city council last August as interim Director for Regeneration, will be tasked with driving forward Liverpool’s regeneration, as well as boosting job creation and employment opportunities in the city.

Nick has already achieved a great deal since joining the council last year, playing a key role in initiatives such as the £350 million redevelopment of the Edge Lane Corridor, the establishment of the Liverpool Embassy in London and the £150 million Project Jennifer regeneration scheme. He has also played a major part in schemes which have created over 300 new businesses and over 500 new jobs in the city since 2010.

He will be responsible for the city’s major regeneration priorities and challenges in the coming years, including the delivery of the £5.5bn Liverpool Waters scheme, working with the Government on proposals for turnaround facilities at the city’s cruise liner terminal, and the redevelopment of the city’s two Premier League football stadiums.

Nick will also be responsible for key Regeneration strategies such as the North Liverpool Strategic Framework, the City’s approach to Regional Growth Fund and the Core Strategy element of the Local Development Framework.
