Councillors' allowances and expenses

Due to essential maintenance being carried out by Pay360, customers may experience online payment disruptions on Sunday July 5 between 4:30-6:30am and Tuesday July 7 between 6-7am. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/restrictions.

Each year we receive recommendations from an Independent Remuneration Panel about the allowances and expenses paid to councillors.

The current scheme of allowances has been updated following the Council meeting's consideration of the Panel's report in February 2020.

We believe in openess and transparency. Each year we publish the amount paid to councillors and independent members in allowances and the amounts claimed in expenses.

Any queries concerning this matter should be made to:

Karen Widdowson, Democratic Services Manager
