THE allowance paid to all Isle of Wight Councillors — £7,700 a year — looks set to remain the same.
The council's independent remuneration panel has recommended the basic allowance, and most of the special responsibility allowances paid to cabinet members and committee chairs, remain unchanged.
It is recommended council leader Cllr Dave Stewart receives a special responsibility allowance of £15,400, cabinet members and the scrutiny chair £7,700, and the planning chair £6,160 on top of their basic allowance.
The panel has recommended other committee chairs and vice-chairs receive between £1,540 and £3,850.
Allowances have not increased for three years. 
The basic allowance is higher than the regional average of £6,416 but below the £9,038 average for unitary authorities. The total annual budget for members' allowances is £453,865.
The recommendations are due to be discussed at Wednesday's council meeting.
