Councillor allowances in 2013 – 2014

I do not have the figures for the civic year just ended, and these figures relate to the 2013 – 2014 civic year in Southend-on-Sea.
Here are the top ten councillors in terms of allowances and expenses received.
The basic allowance was £8,486.04, and the additional sums reflect special allowances added on top. This being the last year of the previous Conservative administration I guess it is no surprise that they dominate the top earners table.
Seven councillors also claimed for travel and subsistence – all Conservative, and headed by Cllr Lamb whose claim amounted to £533.70.
The grand total of all allowances is £633,691.88 This is lower than when I last wrote about councillor allowances in Southend-on-Sea. The total in 2010 – 2011 was £666,257.79, some £32,565.91 higher than for 2013 – 2014.
