Chelmsford City Council

We are part of the Essex Community Shield, which brings volunteers together with the people most in need of help due to coronavirus. You can find out how to get help, or how to volunteer. You can also view our latest coronavirus updates.


View councillor allowances

We pay all councillors a basic allowance. We also pay some councillors a Special Responsibility allowance, depending on the position they hold in the Council.

The allowances help councillors to meet the costs of representing their ward and carrying out their duties. Councillors can also claim travel and subsistence costs.

Every four years, an independent body reviews the councillor allowances. Full Council then decide whether to accept the recommendations of the independent body.
