Public notice: Members' Allowances Scheme
At its Full Council meeting of 13 July 2017, the County Council adopted a revised Members' Allowances Scheme, approving a report by an Independent Remuneration Panel.
The panel's report, including the revised Members' Allowances Scheme [PDF] are available via this link.
The agreed Members’ Allowances Scheme is included in the Council’s Constitution:
The Scheme remains unchanged for 2018/19. The allowances have been uprated in line with the headline pay award for Local Authority staff for the 2018/19 financial year (as detailed in paragraph 3 of the agreed scheme).
