Motor mileage allowance may be claimed for the purpose of official travel by all Communities and Local Government staff. For journeys where staff could reasonably be expected to use public transport then an equivalent mileage rate is paid. A higher, standard mileage rate may be claimed where it is not practical to use public transport. The allowance rates are currently:
Standard mileage rate
Higher (up to 10,000 miles): 40p per mile;
Lower (over 10,000 miles): 25p per mile.
Public transport rate
All mileage: 25p per mile.
Details of motor mileage allowances provided by local authorities are not held centrally.
