Councillors receive an allowance to cover the time they spend on council work and to cover their expenses.
Some Councillors have to spend more time at the council because they have a particular role. Councillors with these extra responsibilities receive a special responsibility allowance which differs depending on their role.
The expenses detailed cover expenses claimed between April and March of each year as opposed to those paid.
Read about the members' allowances scheme in Part 7 of the Suffolk County Council Constitution.
