Staff Allowances and Expenses

Travelling Expenses

Travelling expenses incurred by staff in excess of their normal travel expenses to work are reimbursed after authorisation by the Chief Officer

Subsistence Allowances

Subsistence allowances are payable to staff who are prevented by their official duties from taking a meal at their home or work place and therefore incur additional expenditure. Reimbursement will be subject to receipts being submitted with the claim. For further details see the Travel and Subsistence Policy (pdf, 56.7kb).

Car Allowance Scheme

Mileage rates and lumps sums paid under the terms of the approved scheme were mostly increased from 1st April 2008 in line with the NJC agreement.
