How pay is set

The Scottish Parliament decides what pay councillors get. Councillors can also claim for travel and other costs while on Council duties.

A councillor's pay takes into account the size of the Council, and will be more if the councillor is also a Council Leader, Depute Council Leader,  Provost or Senior Councillor.
