Allotment rent and fee increases

Find out about yearly increases to allotment rent and the waiting list administration fee.

About rent and fees 

Your allotment rent and the waiting list administration fee may increase each year. The amount they increase by depends on the outcome of the council budget.

For the October 2023 to September 2024 growing year the increase is 3% and will come into effect in October.

This means that from October 2023 the:

  • waiting list administration fee has increased to £18.80
  • charge for plots has increased to 36 pence per square metre, per year 
  • fee for a mobility plot will remain £10

From October 2023, an annual administration fee of £25 is being introduced. The administration fee is intended to contribute to the overall rising costs of providing the service.
