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.
