Precept and Budget
The Parish Council decides each year how much money will be needed to maintain parish assets and to contribute to approved projects. This follows a budget process and results in the calculation of the annual precept. All parish councils have the right to raise money by precept (a mandatory demand) on the district council. The precept required by Peasmarsh Parish Council is collected by Rother District Council as part of the council tax levied on tax payers in the parish.

Precept amounts:

2017/18: £28,000

2016/17: £25,770

2015/16: £25,770

2014/15: £25,770           

2013/14: £25,770                       

2012/13: £25,770                   

2011/12: £25,770
