The Independent Remuneration Panel was established to review the Members Allowances Scheme for City of Wolverhampton Council.

Local councils are required by The Local Authorities (Members' Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 to establish and maintain an Independent Remuneration Panel to make recommendations on the level of basic and special responsibility allowances and associated matters that are paid to Councillors.

The Panel is currently composed of three members:

  • Reverend David Wright – The Rector of St. Peters Church Wolverhampton (Chair)
  • Mr Miceal Barden – Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Wolverhampton University
  • Mrs Sylvia Parkin– Formerly Deputy Lieutenant

The Panel submitted its latest report in February 2022 (this can be found within the Downloads section).

Councillors considered the report and its recommendations at the meetings of Governance and Ethics Committee on 25 February 2022 and Council on 2 March  2022.
