Remuneration of Councillors for their work for London Councils

  • By London Councils

The process by which local authorities (and consequently London Councils) pay remuneration allowances to their members is established under section 99 of the Local Government Act 2000. We have had a scheme in place since 2004.  Please contact London Councils directly for information on previous years remuneration.
