Scheme of Members’ Allowances 2021/22

Each Oadby & Wigston Councillor receives a Basic Allowance. The Basic Allowance is the same for every Councillor and its purpose is to recognise the time commitment of Councillors and to cover incidental expenses. Some Councillors who take on extra duties, such as Committee Chairs, receive a Special Responsibility Allowance as well as the Basic Allowance.

The rates of allowance are set by the Council based on recommendations from an Independent Remuneration Panel (IRP) that has no connection with the Council.

At its meeting on 30 March 2021, the Council considered the recommendations of the IRP established to review the Scheme of Members’ Allowances and adopted a Scheme for allowances for the period 15 May 2021 until 14 May 2022.

The main features of the Scheme are set out in the Schedule here:
