Row looms as Norfolk county councillors set to vote on new membership allowance increase
Norfolk county councillors could vote to increase their allowances, as well as residents’ tax bills, when they discuss budget plans next week.
Proposals for a near four per cent rise in the authority’s share of council tax, for an average band D property, will be considered at a meeting in Norwich on Monday.
But members are also due to consider proposals to raise the allowances given to members in line with the anticipated annual pay award to staff, which is expected to be two per cent.
