Membership Fees

Full membership

Each Full Member pays an individually calculated membership fee up to a maximum of £7,900 which has three elements:

1. The base fee

  • Unitary/Metropolitan or County Council – £500
  • District or Borough Council – £250

2. The population fee

This ensures that smaller (typically district) councils are not paying the same population fee as larger unitary or metropolitan council as our members’ population range is from 84,000 to 466,000; a cap ensures that larger authorities are not unduly penalised

  • 0.06% of population expressed as £ and capped at £1,100

3. The budget fee

This is based on the available revenue and capital budget of each council, and reflects the £609m range of budgets between our largest and smaller members; a cap ensures that larger authorities are not unduly penalised

  • 0.02% of budget and capped at £6,300 it is capped.
