Councillor expenses and facilities

Councillors are entitled to be provided with necessary resources and facilities, and to have relevant expenses reimbursed, to support them to effectively perform their roles.

The provision of such facilities and expenses assists the Mayor and Councillors to undertake their respective roles and provides reasonable recompense for expenses they incur in carrying out the functions of civic office.

Our Councillors’ Expenses and Facilities Policy outlines the payment of expenses and provision of facilities to the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Councillors, and provides a framework to ensure accountability and transparency.

 The Councillor's Expenses and Facilities Policy can be found on our Policy page
