    I live in Barnsley and rent mine from the council the rent was 55.00 last year but it will be 69.00 this year payable in november there is a water tap outside my gate which is included in the price not everybody has a tap nearby so they pay 5 less they are large plots i have had mine for 8 years and the first bill was 29.00 so they are certainly shooting up but i suppose it is to be expected in this climate this is my first post as i have only just joined cheers cudsey

    When I first got an allotment in 2008 the price was 16 now 5 years later it is 25 and is a relatively good bargain too!!!

    I pay 15 a year (all plots are 5 rods) , taps on each 2 plots, secure, good allotment association, not allowed fruit trees. There are two stabled ponies alongside so we all have a constant supply of horse manure...so happy days !

    had a lovely surprise when i went to the plot sunday to pay this years rent
    it has gone down.......
    they had some money left over in the kitty so as they knew it was such a struggle last year with the weather they have reduced half plots from 10 to 7.50 so 2 half plots i paid 15
    we have water on site evry 5 plots so well pleased
    they have said it will only be for this year but back to 10 half plot next year

    I take it that wasn't fully a council site? The charges seem odd as I thought they were all standard across the borough apart from the private sites. I took on a Barnsley council plot, apparently no water, but theres a communal water tap just on the track by the plot, and its 30something a year. Its surprising how different the charges can be.

    oh, and welcome to the forum!!

    There is a reduction of 50% of the rental component for Senior Citizens ( over 60) and for those who are registered disabled.

    Lewisham residents who belong to the "Be active scheme" can claim a 25% reduction in the rental component.
    Jeez ....really annoys me that sites are now reclassifying half sized plots as full ones when traditionally a full size plot is 10rods .
