Councillor Expenses

In September 2011, Council resolved to publish the expenses incurred by Councillors on its website each quarter. 

The Local Government Act provides for the Mayor and Councillors to be paid an allowance and for them to be provided with appropriate tools and support to enable them to carry out their roles. 

To properly represent their communities and carry out their significant legal responsibilities, Councillors often need to work long hours and travel. To assist Councillors in meeting their obligations, they are provided with general support such as mobile phones, computers, meals when they are attending meetings at meal times, and reimbursement of official travel costs and telephone bills.   

You can read the previous expenses report on the following webpages:
