Due to the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, no Council meetings will be held before Wednesday 28 September 2022.
For details of Stratford-on-Avon District Council's Independent Remuneration Panel, please see below.
The council is required under the Local Authorities (Members' Allowance) (England) Regulations 2003 and subsequent amendments to establish and maintain an Independent Remuneration Panel (IRP) to review and make recommendations to the council on the range and levels of remuneration for elected members.
Under the regulations, the council is required to undertake a full review at least every four years. However, it has recently decided to undertake "light touch" reviews each year with a full review every fourth year.
There are five members of the panel:
The role of the Independent Remuneration Panel is to make recommendations to the council about allowances to be paid to councillors.
The council must have regard to the recommendations and advice of the panel in determining the level of allowances.
The Panel met again on 23 September 2020 for a light touch review of the Council's Scheme of Members' Allowances and was reported to the Council meeting on 19 October 2020.
