THE 45 jobs Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner came to Grafton to announce are now being advertised.

There will be 41 clerical and administration positions for which the salary will be between $54,742 - $59,512.

The remaining four jobs will consist of leadership roles which will pay $82,000- $91,000 and $108,000 for the top job.

Even if the people who apply for these jobs negotiate their pay for the top figures suggested, the total value of this project in terms of wages for the Clarence Valley will be just over $2.9 million per year.

This figure is substantially less than the $9 million in wages the Valley lost when the State Government down-scaled the jail and a far cry from fulfilling Mr Stoner's famous claim to an ABC journalist that his Government would leave Grafton better off in terms of public service jobs.

None of these jobs will involve contracts longer than three years, said a spokesman from the department of Crown Lands.

According to a Crown Lands spokesman the positions will involve implementing the State Government policy of selling public roads which run through private property back to landowners in order to reduce maintenance costs for the State Government.

A spokesperson from Mr Stoner's office said the jobs may last as long as five years as they do not know how long the policy will take to implement.

Mr Stoner said previously that moving these jobs to a regional area would allow the people implementing this policy to be closer to stakeholders.

"We can accelerate processing by centralising administration, reducing timeframes for consultation and objections and processing applications in batches rather than one at a time," said Mr Stoner.

"By clearing the backlog and streamlining the process, Crown Lands will become more efficient and responsive to its key stakeholders and customers who are mostly located in regional areas."

In terms of where the offices that these people will work from will be located the Department of Crown Lands said that is being handled by the State Property Authority who said they were unable to comment on how much it would cost or where the offices would be located.
