National Park Authority Members’ allowances and expenses published

The 18 Members of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority were paid a total of £78,945 in basic and senior salaries in the last financial year (1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017).

Allowances during this period were determined by the Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales, whose remit to prescribe Members’ salaries extended to National Park Authorities in 2012.

During the 2016/17 financial year Welsh Government appointees David Ellis and Melinda Thomas finished their terms of office, while Cllr Bob Kilmister stood down temporarily to stand as a candidate in the 2016 National Assembly for Wales elections.

Reimbursement of travelling, subsistence and other expense payments amounted to £8,293 in the last financial year, compared with £8,475 in 2015/16.

Members attend a range of meetings on behalf of the Authority for which their expenses are included in the ‘Travel & Subsistence’ section.

The summarised payments are listed in the chart below, where Members’ attendance is shown as a percentage of the number of meetings organised by the Authority at which the Member was expected to attend.

The Document can be accessed on the Authority’s website on www.pembrokeshirecoast.wales under About Us/The Authority/Corporate Documents/Draft Statement of Accounts 2016-17.
