Member's Allowances

Members can claim an allowance to cover the expenses which are normally
associated with the basic duties of being a parish councillor. Travelling and
subsistence expenses are treated separately.

The level of allowance must be the same for all but the Chairman of the Council.

The allowance for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 financial year is £413 per year for Members and £649 for the Chairman.
