Lancaster Council is inviting local people to have their say on councillor allowances by becoming members of the Independent Remuneration Panel (IRP).

The IRP recommends the level of allowances and expenses paid to city councillors under the Members ‘Allowance Scheme.

There are up to three vacancies on the panel.

On average meetings, take place three or four times a year at Lancaster Town Hall but will be held more frequently in years when a full review of the scheme is to take place. The next review is due this year, to take effect in May 2015.

Members of the IRP must not be employees of, or current elected members of the city council or a parish or town council within its district. They must also not be disqualified from becoming a councillor.

Further information and an application form is available to download from the city council’s website at, or to find out more phone Mrs Taylor, on 01524 582025 before January 31.
