Residents in Holbeach with allotments could face a 45 per cent rent rise.

Parish councillors approved the increase for the Bass, Callows, Plank Hook and Dog Drove allotments at their meeting last week.

Allotment holders who now pay £108 an acre could face a £150 charge.

Coun Graham Rudkin told councillors there had been no increase since 2002 and rents in other areas were double the amount proposed.
