Allotment Rent

The allotment rent is decided by Kendal Town Councillors each year in November.  Allotment rent received from tenants is used towards the cost of administration, the services of the handyperson, water bills, repairs and renewing of fencing and boundary walls, pest control and minor tree cutting. The current rent has been calculated at 0.35 p per m2.

Each allotment holder signs a Tenancy Agreement, follow this link to read a sample agreement. The agreement states that cockerels are not permitted on any of the allotment sites.  Tenants found with cockerels on their plots will be asked to remove them immediately as this is a breach of the terms and conditions of the Tenancy Agreement.

FYI – Manure Supplies

A supplier at Oxenholme Farm leaves out bags of free horse manure outside the premises for collection. Look out for the Horse Stables sign.
