Once in a while we like to set our readers a challenge, to see how quickly they can find out something from the District Council website – http://www.rochford.gov.uk/
Your challenge this time is – Go to the council website and find out what is the basic allowance that an ordinary Rochford District Councillor gets each year? This is information that should be readily available, so that someone thinking of standing for election and wondering how it would affect their life can find it easily. Please time yourself so you can tell us how long it took you.
In your comment, please give an answer, how long it took you, and how sure you are that you have the correct answer.
