Parish Basic Allowance

In England, a Parish Council may pay an allowance to Councillors to recognise the time and effort they put into their parish duties. The allowance is not a salary. It is a figure, which is calculated to cover the expenses, which are normally associated with the basic duties of being a local
councillor. The payment of Councillors’ allowances is subject to a statutory process which involves a local remuneration (independent of the local council) panel.
