Shropshire Council needs YOU!

Come and join Shropshire Council’s Independent Remuneration Panel and help make recommendations on councillors’ allowances.

We're looking for people with a keen eye for detail and an inquisitive nature to join our Independent Remuneration Panel.

The panel consists of members of the public who annually review and make recommendations on the level of allowances paid to Shropshire councillors and town/parish councillors in Shropshire. The purpose of the panel is to be fair, open and effective.

Held during normal office hours, the meetings are held as required and allowances are paid to panel members for their attendance. The panel’s work is considered to be essential in providing an impartial view on allowances which enhances public confidence in the process.

We'd like to hear from anyone interested in becoming a part of this essential council function. Full details, including details of who is eligible to apply and an application form, are attached to this page. For an informal discussion or to obtain further details and an application pack, please contact Graham White, Legal and Democratic Services, on (01743) 252757 or

The closing date for completed applications, including the names and addresses of two referees, is 5pm on 20 December 2018, and they should be sent to:
