If you are interested in renting a plot, you can contact us to go on our waiting list.
Taking up a plot for the first time
We will contact you when a plot becomes available on your preferred site.
You can visit our Waterhouse Lane offices to collect a key to the site, so you can inspect the plot.
We normally allocate plots in the winter, from October to March. This allows you to prepare the plot in time for spring.
If an existing tenant gives up a cultivated plot, we will allocate it immediately, so it does not fall fallow.
If you decide to take the plot, you will need to:
- pay a £50 refundable deposit within 14 days
- sign an Allotment Agreement
You can only start to cultivate the plot after we sent you a counter-signed copy of the agreement. You can have up to three keys for the site. There is a refundable charge of £10 per key.
- Standard: £5 per rod
- Concession: £2.50 per rod
- Water: £2.00 per rod
A rod is equivalent to 25 square metres. You can rent allotments by the rod, up to a maximum of 10 rods. If availability is low, the maximum amount of rods you can rent will be five.
Concessions are not available on water charges.
The prices are an annual charge, and are valid until 31 March 2021.
You will qualify for a concession if you are:
- over 60
- a student
- receiving Income Support
