Councillor Allowances

Councillors receive a range of allowances which are intended to recognise the time Councillors devote to their role. This includes meeting with their constituents and political groups, 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.

Independent Panel for Councillor Allowances

Councillor Allowances are decided by an Independent Panel for Councillor Allowances 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.

Councillors vote to accept or reject the recommendations in Full Council, usually in March each year.
