Wyre Council are looking to recruit two residents who will join the council’s Independent Remuneration Panel (IRP).

Successful applicants will be recommended for approval by the full Council. The usual term of office is 4 years, with the new panel members being in post by November 2023 ready for the first review. These are voluntary positions; however, appointed panel members are able to claim mileage and other reasonable out-of-pocket expenses.
The appointment is not open to any person who has been an Elected Member or officer of Wyre Council within the last five years or a person who is a relative or close friend of an Elected Member or Officer of Wyre Council.
