Allotment/market rents frozen

Allotment and market stall rents are to stay the same during the next financial year, Caistor Town Council agreed on Thursday (February 12, 2015).

Councillors agreed to keep the fees at £20 a year for allotments, and £5.50 per week on the market stalls, as the rate of inflation is currently so low.

However, allotment rents will have to be paid by April 1 to ensure keeping the same plot. Town Clerk Helen Pitman said new people would not want to take over allotments three months into the financial year as some of the growing season would be over by then.

The council deferred discussions on cemetery fees as it wants to bring Caistor’s charges more into line with other councils and will need to conduct some research into how much they are.
