On 22 February 2016 Councillors set Rother’s Council Tax charge for a Band ‘D’ property at £164.32, an increase of 1.94 % over last year’s figure of £161.19. This means an amount of £3.16 per week, an increase of just 6p, is payable for the 60 different services provided by Rother District Council, by people living in a Band ‘D’ property.

East Sussex County Council – £1227.88 +
East Sussex County Council Social Care Precept – £24.02 +
Rother District Council – £164.32 +
