(Members Allowances Scheme)

This notice is published in accordance with Regulation 16(1) of the Local Authorities (Members Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 ("the Regulations).

On 10 February 2022 the Council made a Scheme in accordance with regulation 10 of the Regulations. The Scheme will apply, unless amended or revoked until 3 1 March 2023. The Council resolved for the year 2022/2023 to increase the basic allowance, special responsibility allowances be increased in line with the percentage increase to the local government workforce pay (pay point 1) for the year 2021/22 which has been agreed at 2.7%. The Council resolved there would be no change to travel and subsistence allowances and co-optee allowances. A change was made to the dependent carers allowance to a maximum of £8.91 per hour and the cap was increased to £2,171.25.
In making the Scheme, the Council had regard to the recommendations in a report dated November 2021 of an Independent Remuneration Panel.

The Scheme will be viewable from 1 April 2022 in the Council's Constitution, available on its website.
