Isle of Wight councillors have agreed to allowances which will cost £4,000 a year less than the current remuneration scheme.

The 48-seat unitary council will spend less than £155,000 a year on allowances by reducing daily attendance rates from £30 to £20, and increasing the basic allowance from £440 to £1,000 a year.

The leader will receive an additional £6,180 a year, the chairman £3,420, and there will be a special fund to reward those who put in extra efforts.

Unlike many councils, the Isle of Wight has not adopted the rate recommended by the local authority associations of £1,300 a year.
