Members allowances

The Council's Constitution includes a Members' Allowance Scheme that sets out the allowances paid to Councillors and Co-opted Members to enable them to carry out their duties.

Members allowances 2017-2022

Independent Remuneration Panel

The Independent Remuneration Panel makes recommendations to the Council on the level of allowances payable to members. The panel reviews the allowance scheme every four years.

The current schedule of allowances payable to Councillors and Co-opted Members was revised and came into effect from April 2021.
