Councillors - Allowances and expenses

Last Updated:

We pay Councillors a range of allowances which are intended to recognise the time they devote to their role as a Councillor. Councillors may also receive compensation for expenses they incur whilst acting for the Council.

Setting the allowance amount

We determine the value of the allowances following recommendations from an Independent Remuneration Panel.

Payments history

We publish individual Councillor's allowances and expenses. A file of all Councillor expenses from 2004 to the most recent published year is available to download in both pdf and csv data file format.
