Councillors agree reduction in members' allowances bill

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Stockton councillors have taken another step towards achieving the authority’s pledge to reduce members’ allowances by 15 per cent by April 2015.

At a meeting of Full Council last night (April 30), members agreed to freeze the basic allowance and reduce all special responsibility allowances from 2015/16.

They also agreed to bring a further report back to Cabinet and Council in the coming year to reduce the number of Cabinet and select committee posts, which will also contribute towards the 15 per cent reduction pledge.
