Councillors' Allowances


Councillors' Allowances

Councillors' Allowances are set in accordance with the Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003.

Councils are required to keep their Members' Allowances schemes under review. It is also a requirement of the regulations governing the making and amendment of allowances schemes that an independent remuneration panel (IRP) be established to a local authority to review allowances and make recommendations to it.

The Independent Remuneration Panel last met in November 2015 to consider the Members allowances for 2015/16 and for the remainder of the life of this Council (2019).  The recommendations of the IRP were considered by Cabinet at its meeting on 18 January 2016 and recommended to full Council for approval and adoption from May 2016.  A copy of their report can be found at the bottom of this page.

At the end of each scheme year the Council is also required to publish the sums paid in that year to each Member in respect of Basic, Special Responsibility, Co-optees', Travel and Subsistence Allowances. The latest public notice can be found at the bottom of this page which will refer to the previous council civic year. Public Notices for previous years are available on request.
