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. 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 2016/17 and made recommendations to Council on 14 March 2017 (see papers for item 137). The decisions can be seen in the minutes from this meeting at item 137.

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