Councillors allowances

Councillors do not receive a salary although they can receive an allowance to help offset expenses or loss of earnings. When making a scheme of allowances for councillors, the council has to consider recommendations from an independent remuneration panel.  

Details of the scheme are contained within part 6 of the council's constitution and each year details of the payments made during the last financial year are below.

Allowance payments made to Blackpool members for the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021
