VOLUNTEERS are needed to decide how much councillors are paid.

North Somerset Council is creating a body to review the current allowance scheme for councillors.

Anyone with an interest in local government and a connection to the region can apply to be on the panel, although councillors or council employees are excluded.

The council currently pays 61 councillors a basic allowance of £8,136, although some members receive extra for their roles in scrutiny panels or committees.

The seven executive members also get an extra £15,500 per year.

To apply for the panel, email your name, address and work background to suebullock@n-somerset.gov.uk with two referees by 5pm on January 30.
