I’m writing to enquire about certain councillor allowances within your council.
I am currently a second year university student and I am working on a summer research project which involves information on the mileage reimbursement rates in different UK councils.
Unfortunately, upon looking through a number of documents on your web-site, including The Council Constitution, I was unable to find the required information.
Therefore, I was wondering if it would be possible for you to provide me with the following information:
Reimbursement rates for car mileage, including different rates for different engine capacities and/or different annual mileage (if applicable)
Reimbursement rates for bicycle mileage, including any lump-sums or monthly allowances (if applicable).
Dear Mr Harasyuk
In response to your FOI request I can confirm the following:
1) Our reimbursement rates for car Mileage are as follows:
- Up to 10,000 miles – 0.45p
- Over 10,000 miles – 0.25p
However please note that we do not reimburse any of our Councillors for their car mileage.
2) We do not reimburse for bicycle mileage.
