Notice of allotment rent increase

We have written to all Liverpool allotment holders to notify them of a rental increase for 2022 and 2023.

The increase was announced in last year's rent notification circulated to each allotment site in December 2020.

2022 plot rental charges

The annual plot rental charges for the tenancy period 1st January to 31st December 2022:

  • Full plot: £53.00
  • Over 60s concession: £26.50

2023 plot rental charges

The following increased charges for 2023 will be announced in June 2022 after consultation with stakeholders and Liverpool City Council budget setting options for 2023.

The annual plot rental charges for the tenancy period 1st January to 31st December 2023:

  • Full plot: £54.00
  • Over 60s concession: £27.00

Reason for increase

Allotments continue to provide excellent value for money, despite the council losing a significant proportion of its local government funding.

Increases in allotment rents have, wherever possible, been kept to a minimum. However, for the service to remain sustainable and cost neutral to residents, plot rental fees must be revaluated.
