Question 20/19


Question 20/19

Q. What was the total of the grant payable by RDC to the de la Warr pavilion in the 2019/2020 budget? How much was the grant paid to the Rye tourist information centre in the 2019/2020 budget, and what will it be in the 2020/2021 budget? (03/12/2019)

A. The total grant payment  in 2019/20 will have been £683,000. £560,500 has already been paid with the last instalment of £122,500 payable in the last quarter. The total grant this year has been increased by £193,000 compared to the 2018/19 year to meet their arrears of employer pension contributions due to the East Sussex Pension Fund for the period to 31 March 2019.

Rother District Council no longer provides direct financial support for Tourist Information Centres. We do however provide a Tourist Information Point in Rye for which we supply leaflets advertising events and local tourist attractions through our contract with the 'Brochure Connect' distribution service. This is a service that operates throughout the district and costs the Council £18,000/annum.

I hope this provides the answers to your questions. (06/12/2019)
