The charge to residents in Peacehaven for the services provided by Peacehaven Town Council has remained the same for the fourth year in a row.

At the full council meeting on January 21, councillors agreed that the charge, or town precept, would stay at £85.28 per annum for band D households.

The town council said it was also progressing plans to develop the new big park.

Major works to create a gateway and café building will start in April.

The council is exploring a project to turn an empty building in Greenwich Way into a small enterprise centre for business. It is hoped the centre will create new jobs in the town.

It is working with East Sussex County Council to create the enterprise centre.

The council said it was also working on updating its business and service delivery plan, which will include further improvements to the sports park at Piddinghoe Avenue and improvements to Howard Park on the A259.

Cllr John Livings, chair of the policy and finance committee, said: “Through careful and prudent budget management I am pleased to announce that the Council tax demand for Peacehaven Town Council’s services, for the fourth consecutive year, will not increase in 2014/15.”
