Uckfield sports pitches and allotments rents to rise

A 1.5 per cent increase in charges to hire recreation grounds, sports pitches and pavilions will be brought in from next April by Uckfield Town Council.

Allotment rents are set to rise in Uckfield along with costs of hiring council-owned sports pitches and pavilions

A similar rise will also apply to the council’s allotment plots.

The council has five allotment sites:

  • Bell Lane
  • Bird-in-Eye
  • Framfield Road
  • Ridgewood
  • West Park

Examples of current fees and charges:

  • Luxford Field (for locally based organisations): £58 per day
  • Victoria Pavilion: £6.65 per hour (non commercial) and £9.20 per hour (commercial)
  • Ground charges – football: Victoria £861 (seniors and seasonal per team).

The increases were agreed by members of the environment and leisure committee.

They have also agreed to increase cemetery fees. See report here
