Hire charges for room hire at Uckfield Civic Centre will rise by two per cent from next April.
A similar increase will be applied to the Foresters Hall and pavilions at the Victoria Pleasure Ground and West Park.
The rises for the town council-owned buildings were approved by councillors on Monday (November 4).
In recent years, the council has increased charges annually in line with inflation to allow rates to “tick up”, rather than imposing larger increases at less frequent intervals.
Examples of current room hire per hour rates are:
Uckfield Civic Centre
Non-commercial, £23.50 (off-peak), £28.50 (peak),
Commercial £40.80 (off-peak), £45.80 (peak).
Non-commercial £12.25 (off-peak), £15.25 (peak),
Commercial £21.40 (off-peak), £25.40 (peak).
Other rooms are available at the Civic Centre which are not subject to peak/off-peak arrangements.

Foresters Hall main hall

The rate for youth voluntary group is £4.90.
