Councillors' allowances and payments

Councillors are not paid a salary or wages, but they are entitled to claim allowances and expenses to cover some of the costs of carrying out their public duties.

All councillors receive an annual allowance. Certain councillors also receive a special allowance, in recognition of the greater responsibilities attached to the position they hold.

Lewes members' allowances

Details of what the members are entitled to claim are laid out in Part 7 of the Members' Allowances Scheme of the Lewes District Council Constitution, which is available to download below.
