Our pension fund is part of the local government pension scheme (LGPS). It is governed by the LGPS regulations and is open to all local government employees.
The accounts for our pension fund are separate from the council’s accounts and are not included in the council's revenue account, balance sheet or other statements.
We are the administering authority of the fund and we are responsible for its proper management. You can find out how we fund, invest in, manage and administer our pension fund by reading our individual strategy and policy documents below.
