The Council considered a report in respect of a proposed Members’ Allowances Scheme for 2023/24.
It was moved by Councillor Richard Henry, and seconded by Councillor Mrs Joan Lloyd, that the recommendations in the report be approved.
During the debate, the Council noted that the Liberal Democrat Group would be raising the issue of the level of Special Responsibility Allowances for minority party Group Leaders with the Independent Remuneration Panel as part of the Panel’s review of Members’ Allowances in the Autumn of 2023.
Upon the motion being put to the vote, it was RESOLVED:
1. That a Members' Allowances Scheme be agreed for 2023/24, as set out in Appendix A to this report, be agreed.
2. That the Scheme be updated should a percentage increase NJC Pay Award be agreed for 2023/24.
3. That, should the 2023/24 NJC Pay Award be a flat rate increase for employees, then (as per 2022/23 Scheme) the Scheme be updated by the percentage rate increase on allowances listed in the NJC pay agreement circular dated 28 February 2022.
