Members' allowances

All councillors receive a basic allowance for the work they do as a councillor and some receive an additional special responsibility allowance where they have significant additional responsibilities that go beyond the duties of a councillor.  Councillors can also claim childcare, travel, subsistence and telephone expenses.

You can view an annual breakdown of the allowances paid to Coventry City councillors and co-opted members since 2005.  

The Council is required to appoint an Independent Remuneration Panel to review the Member Allowance Scheme. An Independent Remuneration Panel reviewed the scheme in 2011-12 and made recommendations to Council on 24 July 2012 (from page 273). The decisions can be seen in the minutes from this meeting. The Panel's recommendations were also considered by Cabinet on 10 July 2012. 

Further information about the current Member Allowances Scheme can be found in part five of the Constitution.

The Scheme is now due for review and a Panel has been appointed to carry this out.
