Councillor Allowances

The Remuneration Tribunal of South Australia determines mayor and councillor allowances. Section 76 of the Local Government Act 1999 requires the Tribunal to make a four-yearly allowance determination, which must occur at least 14 days before election nominations close. These are then adjusted each November.

The following allowances for City of Playford (Group 1B Council) reflect the determination as of 05 July 2022:

  • The annual allowance for a councillor is $22,828
  • The annual allowance for a councillor who is a deputy mayor, or presiding member is one-and-a-quarter times the annual allowance for councillors, being $28,535
  • The annual allowance for the mayor is four times the annual allowance for Councillors, being $91,312

The Council Member Allowance and Benefits Register may be viewed by the public at the Playford Civic Centre, Elizabeth.

Behavioural Management Policy

A new Behavioural Management Framework for council members commenced on 17 November 2022 in accordance with the reform of the Local Government Act 1999 and introduction of requirements under section 262B.

To support this requirement, new Local Government (Transitional Provisions)(Conduct) Amendment Regulations 2022 deem the LGA's Model Behavioural Management Policy as each council's Behavioural Management Policy until a subsequent policy is adopted.

Behavioural Management Policy complaints can be lodged via governance@playford.sa.gov.au or in person at 12 Bishopstone Road, Davoren Park.
