Why would they put rent up?

Because Toblerones and Broccoli are now in the official basket of goods for CPI.

If the rateable value has gone up 50%, there's surely scope to up the rent. I hope they don't, I wouldn't want your squirrels to starve now, would I? :smokin

There is scope to move also, council does not care if you do.

It's just an old Pentium III and some picnic furniture anyway, can't be hard to move location.

Move to Dublin. Nicer city, in the EU, Oirish lasses, Guinness, low taxes.

No brainer.
