Members' Allowances Scheme 2020/21

The Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 require local authorities to make a scheme of allowances for their members and to establish and maintain an independent remuneration panel to make recommendations to the council about the scheme and the amounts to be paid. The Regulations make provision for London Councils to establish an independent Panel to exercise the functions of an independent remuneration panel on behalf of London borough councils.

At its meeting on 15th July 2020 the Council decided not to accept the full amounts recommended by the Independent Panel in their report 'The Remuneration of Councillors in London' published in January 2018 and agreed to leave the rate of allowances, including Basic Allowance, unchanged for 2020/21.
