The Independent Remuneration Panel was established in 2018 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:

  • Miss Habiba Amjad - Member of the public
  • Mr Miceal Barden - Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Wolverhampton University
  • Reverend David Wright - Representing the Rector of St. Peters Church Wolverhampton

Reverend David Wright was the Chair.

The Panel submitted its latest report in January 2018 (this can be found under the downloads section to the right).

Councillors considered the report and its recommendations at the meetings of Standards Committee on 19 January 2018 and Council on 31 January 2018.
