The Romney Marshes Area Internal Drainage Board is a self-funding public body.

Approximately 24% of the Board’s adjusted net expenditure is met from the agricultural rate and the remaining 76% is met by Special Levies charged on the councils in the district.

The calculation of the rate and special levies for the year 1st April 2023 - 31st March 2024 is:-

Agricultural Rate   £219,341
Special Levies Ashford Borough Council £12,925
  Rother District Council £147,547

Rates collected are used to pay for the maintenance or improvement of watercourses and structures. Approximately 41% of the income received is paid to the Environment Agency in the form of a precept to contribute to the maintenance of their watercourses and assets.

The Agency makes a contribution to the Board for accepting upland water from the catchment into the lowland area.
