Councillors' remuneration

The pay of councillors is decided by the Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales (IRPW). Councillors are not paid for attending meetings but receive a salary to reimburse them for the time and expenses spent whilst on Council business.

Councillors can also claim travel allowance. The current rate is 45p per mile reducing to 25p per mile after 10,000 miles in line with HMRC.
