Members allowances

The files below show the allowances paid to our elected members, independent members and co-opted members in the year 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018.

The files include:

  • basic allowances (which all elected members receive)
  • special responsibility allowance (e.g. for chairing Committee)
  • travel and subsistence for elected members and allowances for independent members

This is in accordance with section 15 of the Local Authorities (Member’s Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 (Statutory Instruments 1021) .

The amounts paid vary between members accordingly to their particular responsibilities and also the number of meetings and distance they may need to travel from their home to those meetings.
