The role of panel members
The Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances) Regulations 2003 provide for local authorities to establish and maintain an independent remuneration panel to be responsible for the monitoring of the Members’ Allowance Scheme and to make recommendations to the Council regarding the scheme.
Members of the Independent Remuneration Panel must not be an elected Member of the Authority or a member of any committees of the Authority and must also not be disqualified from becoming a Member of the Authority.
Wokingham Borough Council is looking to recruit two additional members for its Independent Remuneration Panel.
The post is on a voluntary basis and the term of the appointment is four years from the date of appointment. It is envisaged that the initial commitment is likely to involve four to five meetings during March to September, although this might vary depending on workload.
