Removal of the essential user allowance

This report provides the committee with a proposal which removes the essential car user allowance and associated mileage rates for all staff (as per the commitment reached in the 2016/17 pay settlement), but also ensures that the few members of staff who do travel extensively across the district on council business are not heavily impacted in a negative way.
