Prudhoe Allotment Rent Rises 2015

It is hard to believe that another season in the allotment is coming to a close. Some of us can look back to a productive season where real progress was made in breaking new ground, tidying up the plot or getting that new glasshouse up.  Others may be seeing the weeds take over another corner of the plot, another bed collapse or a hedge that you just didn’t have time to tackle.

With the renewal of rents due in January and February, it is a good chance to consider how much time you actually have to manage a plot.  Although we try to keep the rents as low as possible, costs for water and allotment infrastructure repairs continue to increase.  Nonetheless, demand for allotments remains high and we are still limited to our four allotment sites.

If you are considering giving up your allotment, it is best to make that decision before rents are due so that we can re-allocate plots in time for the new growing season.

Rent Rises:
2015
Full Plot – £32.50
Half Plot – £16.25
Small Plot – £10

2016
Full Plot – £40.00
Half Plot – £20.00
Small Plot – £12.50

2017
Full Plot – £47.50
Half Plot – £23.75
Small Plot – £15.00

Pensioners over 65 pay half rates.
