Trinity House and the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses follow the UK Government’s pay guidance. In the case of the Commissioners of Irish Lights, who are based in the Republic of Ireland, local market conditions are taken into account when arriving at their pay budget bid which is included in their corporate plans. All three General Lighthouse Authorities are required to comply with guidance issued by HM Treasury for the approval of senior pay.

The General Lighthouse Fund Report and Accounts, which are laid before Parliament and published on each year, includes a remuneration and staff report as well as the salaries of Chief Executives, Directors and Non-Executive Directors (where applicable) of all three General Lighthouse Authorities which also produce their own dedicated Report and Accounts.

The details for other staff is attached.
