Teignbridge DC Residents Panel

Be part of an Independent Review

We have a great opportunity for one or two members of the ‘Talking Teignbridge’ residents’ panel to join a special advisory panel that reviews Teignbridge District Councillor allowances.

How does it work?

The ‘Independent Remuneration Panel’ looks at what each of the 46 district councillors is entitled to and their responsibilities, and recommends appropriate levels of allowance. This procedure takes place under the ‘Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances) Regulations 2003.’

You will need to attend a minimum of three meetings at the council offices in Newton Abbot between July and December 2018.

You will ideally have access to emails and will be provided with lots of information and the opportunity to ask questions to help you in reaching the recommendations, which will be presented to the council in January 2019 to coincide with district council elections in May 2019.

This is a voluntary role, but expenses can be claimed.

If you are interested in serving on the panel please email your details and a paragraph describing why you would like to be considered to

Closing date for responses is 2 July 2018 9am
