Council Agrees New Relocation Policy

The Council has agreed its policy on helping new staff relocate to the islands.

New recruits to posts lasting two years or more will get up to £6,000 in relocation costs for moves within the UK and from overseas

The cash would apply to the costs of moving partners and dependents

Cllr Amanda Martin wanted the wording to be clear to make sure that the policy applies only to people who have just taken up a job in Scilly and not to people already here.

Debbie Rigby told her it would be made clear and she would police it
