The £348,000 calculation.

Unsurprisingly, residents in Croham have been stunned by the above leaflet. The easiest thing to do is explain our calculations:

Data on council web site only covers up to 2013. The 2013/14 details won't be out for a while.  So, for the period between 2010 and 2013 (a three year period),  the three  Tory Councillors were paid the following in taxpayers money in allowances:

Neal- £21,371
Perry- £43,339
Gatland- £22,345
TOTAL - £87,055

Neal- £21,371
Perry- £43,339
Gatland- £22,345
TOTAL- £87,055

Neal- £21,571
Perry- £43,744
Gatland- £22,416
TOTAL- £86,688

This comes to a grand total of £260,778 paid out to the three.

However, as we know, a Councillors term is four years!  NOT THREE.  We could take into account 2009/10 for a rough idea of how much the three have been paid in a four year period.

Neal- £21,016
Perry- £43,340
Gatland- £22,402 
TOTAL- £86,758

This comes to an overall total of £347,536 between 2009 and 2013
