Following its meeting on 26 January the Board agreed to consult on a number of issues as part if its annual review of the Determination. The proposals included:
- increasing support staff salaries for 2017-18 by 2.1 per cent in line with the provisional 2016 figures for ASHE median earnings in Wales;
- increasing the office costs allowance by 1.2 per cent in line with the CPI estimate as at November 2016;
- increasing RAE allowance from its current level of £735 per month to £775 per month to reflect current conditions in the local property market.
The Board considered the responses received to the consultation at its March meeting and agreed to implement the above changes with effect from 1 April 2017.
