The Cabinet Member for Waste, Street Scene and the Environment:
1. Approved the increase in allotment plot fees commencing year 2021 – 2022 and fixed these fees for a period of 3 years.
There has not been an increase in site fees for over 10 years, we are now seeing increasing costs for the maintenance of the sites and site representatives feel that we need to increase our income to ensure that allotment sites can be maintained to an acceptable standard.
We have a waiting list for all sites across Peterborough so this demonstrates the need to ensure they are kept well maintained as a valuable asset to the residents.
Do nothing – this was not considered viable as we have seen increased costs in maintenance for the sites and without the additional income this could mean that much needed repairs are not carried out.
