Councillor Allowances and Expenses

Borough Councillors receive an allowance each year for conducting their duties as councillors. This might include, but is not limited to, activities such as attending Council meetings, conducting work or research on behalf of residents, attending local events and resolving issues in their local community. They are also able to claim expenses, such as travel costs, which relate to their work as councillors.

All allowances and expenses are paid in line with Part 6 of the Council's Constitution, the Members’ Allowances and Expenses Scheme, and the total amount paid to each councillor is published at the end of each financial year.

You can also view a simplified version of the Members' Allowances schemes for 2018/19.
