Councillors receive a basic allowance that is intended to recognise the calls on their time such as council meetings, meetings with officers, constituents and official council business. The allowance also covers their incidental costs such as the use of homes and private telephones.
Members' allowances are considered periodically by the Lancaster City Council Independent Remuneration Panel. The panel consists of up to 7 independent people appointed by the council. The recommendations of the panel are then considered by full Council.
In accordance with the law Lancaster City Council publishes annually the payments made to councillors in respect of basic, special responsibility, childcare and dependent carers’ allowances, travelling and subsistence allowances and co-optees’ allowances.
- The payment of allowances to elected members can be viewed in the Allowances Paid Notice in the document downloads menu.
