For Your Information

At a meeting of the South Hams Executive on 16 September Councillors received an update on the waste and recycling situation in South Hams and have reluctantly agreed to keep the suspension of garden waste in place. The Executive will review the situation when they meet again on 14 October.

Councillor Allowances and Annual Attendance

Annual attendance records of your ward councillor at Council meetings and member allowances can be seen below.


It should be noted that attendance at formal meetings forms only one part of the role of a Councillor and does not reflect the level of work done within their respective wards or in representing the Council on other bodies. 

In addition, it should also be noted that Members come from different backgrounds and some, particularly those in full time employment or with carer responsibilities, may find attendance at meetings more of a challenge. 

These attendance figures should not, therefore, be regarded in their own right as a barometer of a councillor's effectiveness as an elected representative.


What are members entitled to?

District Councillors are entitled to an allowance and to have both their travel and subsistence expenses reimbursed in accordance with the Scheme of Members Allowances. For more details, please see Icon for pdf Members Allowance Scheme [431.67KB].
