The amounts paid to each councillor are published each year.
These are calculated over a financial year - ie from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012 the following year.
The table below show the total paid broken down into basic and special responsibility allowances, and travel, subsistence and carer's allowances.
Independent members of the Standards Committee (prior to July 2012) were able to claim travel expenses and an allowance per meeting. The council's Independent Persons (after July 2012) are able to claim travel expenses. These expenses are shown in the table below.
