The highest paid district councillors in Gloucestershire are to vote on whether or not to cut their allowances.

Tewkesbury Borough Council pays an allowance of £9,000 pa to its councillors - more than twice the rate on Cotswold District Council.

If approved, Tewkesbury's 38 members would see a cut of some £2,000 from after the May elections.

The council is run by a coalition between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats.

The decision will be taken at a meeting of the borough council on Thursday evening.
