Letter to the editor | WSCC pay off

Dear Editor,

The BBC gave top coverage of the scandalous pay off to the former chief executive of West Sussex County Council who should have been sacked without any compensation after the Coughlan Report was received.


Nathan Elvery rode back across the Surrey border with £330,00 of our money stuffed in his saddlebags! The current issue of Private Eye has awarded him the title of ‘King of the Gravy train’.


He had previously been given £47,500 for removal to Chichester which never took place! The actions of the council from the time Nathan Elvery was appointed are being investigated in considerable detail. And let’s not forget the cuts in children’s and other services which have occurred.


I urge readers to email Tony Kershaw, Director of Law and Assurance at West Sussex County Council:, as follows: ‘I protest that WSCC gave Mr Elvery a total of £330,000 of public money instead of sacking him.’
