Allowances & Expenses

Allowances & Expenses

Town Council:
None. As a Town Councillor I get no allowances and no expenses.  All my work is voluntary and free. I hope, therefore, I provide good value for money!

District Council:
As a District Councillor I receive a basic allowance.  In 2019 I was promoted to Cabinet and also receive a Special Responsibility Allowance for the extra work that involves.  The only expenses I claim are the car expenses for travel to official sanctioned meetings, all claims are checked by Officers and approved.  I have never voted for a rise in allowances.

County Council:
As a County Councillor I receive a basic allowance.  The only expenses I claim are the car expenses for travel to official sanctioned meetings, all claims are checked by Officers and approved.  I have never voted for a rise in allowances.
