Member Allowances and Expenses

All members of the parish council give their time voluntarily.   They receive no payment for the time and effort they devote to progressing improvements in the parish on your behalf.  Consideration is given periodically as to whether an allowance should be introduced for councillors, but this proposal has always been rejected.  Many councillors also incur expenses fulfilling these duties (such as telephone calls, ink, paper or postage etc) and only occasionally are any recompense requests made for these expenses – often the councillors will waive their right to claim.   All of these actions help to ensure that the cost to residents is as low as possible.

The parish council meets the cost of any training courses or seminars required to improve the knowledge base of members to enable them to fulfil their duties.
