Members allowances

Our Members' Allowances Scheme is made under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, the Local Government Act 2000 and in accordance with the Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003.

The regulations allow councils to make a scheme which specifies the amount of allowance payable to members, including travel and subsistence allowances. But we must have regard to the recommendation of an independent remuneration panel in setting the allowances.

The allowances payable to councillors in North West Leicestershire are set by an Independent Remuneration Panel on Members' Allowances which reviews allowances in accordance with Government guidelines.

The council is required under the above regulations to publish its scheme of allowances for councillors. Details of the council's current scheme are set out in the council's Constitution and will apply until the scheme is amended or replaced.

All members of the council are entitled to a basic allowance - currently £3,780.03 per year for the financial year 2015-16. The rate is increased annually in line with the annual pay settlement for local government employees.
