Councillor Allowances

The Council pays its councillors a range of allowances which are intended to recognise the time Councillors devote to their role as a Councillor. This includes such inevitable calls on their time as meeting with their constituents and political group meetings, and also to cover incidental costs, such as the use of their homes, for which no provision is made.

The Council is required to publish annually the total sum paid to each Councillor in respect of Basic, Attendance and Special Responsibility allowances paid in each financial year. 

You can view the Council's Members Allowance Scheme and the Notice of Councillors Expenses below.

Independent Remuneration Panel

Councillor Allowances are decided by an Independent Remuneration Panel which is made up of people independent from the Council. The Panel is responsible for reviewing the allowances paid to Borough Councillors and making recommendations to the Council about them.
