A SALARY of over �100,000 was rubber stamped for the interim chief executive of a district council last night (Thursday).

This will allow a handover to take place between Mr Scholes and the outgoing John Campbell.

Mr Scholes, the former housing and planning boss at the authority, will receive �102,897 a year and is entitled to a �4,000 car allowance a month, an annual pay cut of �11,000 from his predecessor.
