Apply to join the Harrogate and Wokingham Borough Council Independent Remuneration Panels

August 21, 2009 9:41 AM

News reaches us that Wokingham Borough Council and Harrogate Council are looking for new members for their Independent Remuneration Panels. 


IRPs are citizens panels that recommend what pay and perks councillors receive.  They’re your chance to have a say on the type of service your councillors and your council are providing.


Recently, Wokingham’s councillors voted through a 10% pay increase, taking the basic councillor salary up to £7,360 and the leader’s salary to £20,000 on top of the £7,360 basic salary.  If you’re not pleased with that, don’t just sit there, apply to join the IRP.


With the government borrowing enormous amounts, every penny we can save can make the difference to public finances. 


If you would like to get involved and enquire about joining the Wokingham Borough Council Independent Remuneration Panel, then please contact Ella Hutchings from the council’s democratic services on (0118) 974 6052.


To apply to join Harrogate Council's IRP contact Andy West, Member Services Manager on 01423 556002 or email andy.west@harrogate.gov.uk.


Should you have any questions about the application or intend to apply, please let us know by sending an email to Tim Aker.
