Barnet Councillors' allowances and expenses 

Elected Members (Councillors) of an authority are entitled under the Members’ Allowances Scheme to receive remuneration for the duties they perform. The scheme is governed by the Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 (as amended) and the Local Government Pension Scheme and Discretionary Compensation (Local Authority (Members in England) Regulations 2003 (“the Regulations”).

All councillors are entitled to a basic allowance to cover their democratic duties.

The scheme also includes details of allowances available to independent or co-opted members of committees.
