Chelmsford City Council

Chelmsford, along with the rest of England, is now in lockdown until further notice. You can find out what this means and get other useful information on our coronavirus updates page.

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.
