Emma Boon of the Taxpayers' Alliance says the findings of the survey that shows more than 3,000 senior council staff are earning more than £100,000, is shocking.
Top of the Rich List when redundancy packages were excluded was Geoff Alltimes, then chief executive of Hammersmith and Fulham Council on £281,666.
Mr Alltimes no longer works for the council, which now shares the position of chief executive with another London council.
According to the study, the local authority with the most employees receiving more than £100,000 in 2010-11 was Barnet at 47 - something the council immediately claimed was untrue.
More than 3,000 senior council executives pocketed pay and perks packages in excess of £100,000, according to research out today.
The Taxpayers' Alliance (TPA) study revealed 3,097 town hall employees were awarded deals worth six-figure sums in 2010-11, a hike of 13% on the previous year.
It also found 658 staff earned between £150,000 and £249,999, while 52 broke the £250,000 mark.
