The legislative framework for members’ allowances is contained in the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, the Local Government Act 2000 and the Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances)(England) Regulations 2003, SI 2003/1021. Local authorities must establish a members’ allowances scheme that provides for the payment of a basic allowance, which is intended to recognise the time commitment of all members, including such inevitable engagements as meeting with officers and constituents and attendance at political group meetings. It is also intended to cover incidental costs such as the use of their homes.
The scheme may also include:
a special responsibility allowance (payable to the leader of the council, portfolio holders, overview and scrutiny chairs, opposition leaders, etc)
a dependants’ carers’ allowance
a co-optees’ allowance (for attending conferences and meetings)
travel and subsistence allowances
