Members allowances 2014/15

Councillors, known as Members, do not get paid for serving as residents elected representatives. However they should not be out-of-pocket for serving their community. They are therefore allocated an allowance for their expenses.  All Members get a basic allowance and there are additional sums allocated for those Councillors with greater responsibilities.

The allowances are reviewed regularly by an Independent Remuneration Panel who operate under the requirements of the Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances)(England) Regulations 2003.

The regulations require that the Panel should advise the Council on:

  • The amount of Basic Allowance which should be payable to elected Members;
  • The categories of Members who should have Special Responsibility Allowances and the amount of such allowances;
  • Whether allowances should be paid to co-opted Members (e.g. lay Members of Standards Committee) and the amount of such allowances;
  • Whether childcare/dependent care allowances should be paid;
  • Whether certain allowances should be pensionable;
  • Whether the allowances should be adjusted by reference to a specified index and for how long that index should apply.

The Council has just published the allowances paid to Members for the for the last financial year:
