Members allowances, or councillors expenses as they are also known, provide for a basic allowance which must be the same for all councillors.
In addition special responsibility allowances have been agreed for certain designated councillors to recognise their additional responsibilities.
Councillors are also able to claim travel and subsistence allowances and a contribution towards the costs incurred in caring for dependent relatives when they are engaged on official duties.
Full details of the scheme and the amount of the allowances currently payable are set out in the Council Constitution (part 6) linked below.
