Minor Change to the Constitution: Councillors' Allowances Scheme

The Head of Governance, People & Performance has agreed that a minor amendment be made to the Councillors’ Allowances Scheme in respect of the Special Responsibility Allowance for the Chair of any Scrutiny Panel.  The following note will therefore be added to the bottom of Schedule 1 of the Scheme:


“*** This allowance will be a one-off payment made at the conclusion of the Panel.  Should the Chair of a Scrutiny Panel subsequently take on another position of special responsibility before the conclusion of the Panel, they will be entitled to both allowances only if, in the opinion of the Head of Governance, People & Performance, they were Chair for the majority of the Panel's work.”


This change will take immediate effect and the Constitution will be amended when it is next updated.
