Isle of Anglesey County Council

Allowances for councillors

Payments to members, including co-opted members, are prescribed by the Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales. The list of payments to elected members is published annually.

The full scheme is available as part 6 of the Isle of Anglesey County Council Constitution. The following is a summary to help explain the tables.

Basic salaries are paid to all councillors each month as recognition of the work all councillors do in that role.

Senior and civic salaries are paid to councillors who have additional responsibilities by virtue of positions they hold - for example, as a member of the Executive or chairman of a committee - and which require more of their time and effort.

The number of senior and civic salaries is limited to sixteen at any one time. All senior and civic salaries are paid inclusive of the basic salary.

Contributions towards costs of care and personal assistance are intended to enable any person whose ability to participate as a member of an authority would be limited by their responsibilities as a carer, or for a member to receive care support to enable that individual to carry out their role.

Claims can be made in respect of a dependant under 16 years of age, or a minor or adult who normally lives with the member as part of their family and who cannot be left unsupervised.

In respect of a member’s own care or support needs, reimbursement may be claimed where the support and/or cost of any additional needs are not available or met directly by the authority, such as access to work, personal payments, insurance. These could arise when the needs are recent and/or temporary.

We publish a list of payments annually.

To find out what each councillor is entitled to, go to Members’ Schedule of Remuneration under downloads.

The tables show the amounts paid directly to councillors during the year. Basic, senior and civic salaries are paid automatically to those entitled, but councillors are entitled to forego these allowances in whole or part if they wish.

Other allowances have to be claimed by the councillors, usually monthly. Sometimes, for example in the case of train journeys, it is more convenient for the council to pay the expense directly to the service provider and those expenses are not included here.
