Review of allotment rents

The Council is required by its Financial Regulations to review all fees and charges annually.  By law a Council is required to make a charge for allotments “which a tenant can reasonably be expected to pay”. There are no recommended rates of charges. At the meeting of the Council held on 4th November 2013 the Council reviewed the allotment rents.

The decision of the Council was to leave the allotment rents unchanged for the period 1st October 2013 to 30th September 2014

The current charges are:
1 plot - £11 per annum
1⁄2 plot - £8 per annum
1⁄4 plot - £6 per annum Waterlogged plot - £5 per annum.

All rents are collected in arrears.

The Parish Council rents the allotment field for £150 per annum.

The provision of water is arranged by the allotment holders separately from the Parish Council.

New Allotment Tenancy Agreement

The allotment tenancy agreement was reviewed and updated during 2012. Any new allotment tenancies commencing after 11 November 2012 will be made under the new agreement
