Operational Mileage Allowance

Car mileage is paid to staff at different rates depending on whether an officer is a designated essential car user or a casual car user, and also depending on what type of journey they are undertaking.  (An essential car user is a post that requires the use of a private car in order to conduct day to day duties).  The rate per mile also depends on the engine size of the member of staff's car.
