Residents needed for Independent Panel


Mid Sussex District Council is inviting local residents to apply for vacancies on the panel which reviews Councillors’ Allowances.


The Council is looking for someone with excellent communication skills to join the independent panel to review Councillor's Allowances. The panel advises the Council on the level and type of allowances to be paid to Councillors.


The Panel consists of three members of the public and the appointment is for a four-year term. There are currently three vacancies as the current term has concluded.


The appointment is a voluntary role, although a small allowance is paid.  Meetings of the Panel can be held in the evenings or during office hours to suit the convenience of the Panel.  The Panel will normally meet on around 5 occasions between July and December but may be asked for a view at other times of the year if new matters arise.


Previous committee experience would be an advantage.


Elected members of any local authority, people with a political affiliation and officers of Mid Sussex District Council are not eligible for these appointments.

For further information and details of how to apply, please see the website at The closing date for applications is Friday 22 February 2019 and interviews will take place w/c 4 March.
