How much do councillors get 'paid' in Rutland and South Kesteven?
Figures reveal a significant disparity in the amount of money councillors in Rutland and South Kesteven receive for carrying out their duties.
Councillors elected to local authorities are not paid, but they are entitled to claim a basic allowance, while some those with additional responsibilities - including council leaders and their deputies - are given a special allowance on top of this.
While the 27 Rutland county councillors have been entitled to a basic allowance of £3,770 each, the 56 members of South Kesteven District Council could claim £5,517.
