Members' allowances

Allowances are paid to all our elected councillors and co-opted members appointed to certain committees.

You're entitled to know exactly how much each councillor receives and the type of allowances they are paid, including travel and subsistence. 

We have a legal obligation to publish this information under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 and the Local Government Act 2000. It is also in accordance with the Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003. 

The allowances payable to councillors in Salford are set by an independent remuneration panel on members' allowances. This follows government guidelines.  

If a member's term of office does not cover the whole of a year, the amount of allowance payable will be proportionate to the actual term served.
