Members' allowances

Members' allowances

Chesterfield Borough councillors are entitled to claim allowances in connection with carrying out their duties as councillors.

These include a basic allowance for all councillors, and a special responsibility allowance for those with additional responsibilities such as cabinet members and chairs of council committees.

Members' allowances are periodically reviewed by an Independent Remuneration Panel. The most recent panel review took place in December 2019 with changes taking effect from 1 April 2020.

Full details of the current scheme are available in Part 6 of the council constitution.
The council has a legal obligation to publish an annual statement of basic/special responsibility/attendance allowances and any travel and subsistence allowances paid to its members during a financial year.

Details of payments made each year can be downloaded below.
