Each year we publish the pay and expenses of all our councillors who are paid monthly. They are also entitled to claim for travel and subsistence expenses, together with other expenses actually incurred in carrying out their duties as councillors. Claims for expenses can only be paid on production of receipts.
Remuneration and expenses are governed by legislation, regulation and our policies. There is no scope to make additional payments outwith the regulations. In addition to directly paid expenses, we also provide councillors with equipment such as telephones and computers to assist them in carrying out their duties.
