Under government legislation, our Councillors are entitled to receive a remuneration package which consists of salary, subsistence, accommodation and travel expenses. Subsistence and accommodation are subject to upper limits set by regulation and are payable on production of valid receipts. Salaries are paid four weekly and this can give rise to small differences in the actual payments made from one financial year to the next.
