Proposed changes to allotment fees
As part of our draft budget for 2023/24, we are proposing to increase most fees and charges by 10% in order to cover the costs of the service being charged for.
However, we understand the pressure of rising costs and recognise some businesses and individuals would find a 10% increase unaffordable.
We are therefore proposing an increase of just 5% to allotment fees, which is below inflation so represents a real-terms cut in prices.
The new fees would take effect from April 2023 and are shown below.
|2022/23 fee||Proposed 2023/24 fee||Proposed increase|
|Allotments (full plot)||£88.95||£93.40||5%|
|Allotments (half plot)||£44.65||£46.88||5%|
|Allotments (one third plot)||£29.70||£31.19||5%|
This consultation asked for your views on the proposals. It closed on Monday 9 January. All feedback will be taken into account when councillors meet to agree the budget in February.
