The Parish Council raises income by means of a precept levied on households in the parish and this is collected together with Council Tax by Rother District Council.

Each year, by January at the latest, Council has to agree the budget and precept for the forthcoming financial year. 

Precept for 2019/20

In December Council approved the budget and agreed to increase the precept to £38,500. This is an increase of £2,500 (6.94%) from last year. This will equate to £34.41 per annum for Band D Council tax payers, which is an increase of just £0.06 per week. This slight increase will allow for the election costs in May, a new Local Action Plan, new noticeboards, whilst building up reserves for other large planned projects.
