Apply for an allotment
After submitting a request to apply for an allotment you will only receive contact from the Allotment Office when your application has progressed to the top of the list and a plot has become available.
All other requests
All other requests will be handled by the Allotment Office at the earliest opportunity.
Costs are payable in April each year. The charge for a plot, up to 1 April 2022, is £67.25.
We do offer concessions, which will require proof of entitlement. The current concessionary charge is £52.50.
A refundable deposit of £20 is payable for a key to access the site.
Complete the form below to apply for an allotment.
When plots become available a site plan and application form will be sent out to you in the post. You will be asked to visit the plot, complete and return your application to the team.
Two tenancy agreements will then be sent to you, one for you to keep and the second one to be signed and returned to the Allotment Team.
No rental is required at this time as an appropriate bill will be sent out within three weeks from signing the tenancy agreement.
Deposits are refundable when the keys are returned, unless outstanding rent is due on an allotment. Faulty or damaged keys are exchanged free of charge and lost keys are subject to an additional deposit.
Applying for a concession
Concessions must be applied for annually between 1 January and 31 March.
Concessions are available if you are -
- a senior citizen (60+)
- a student
- registered disabled
- unemployed or in receipt of benefit, including housing benefit
Senior citizens who already have an allotment are automatically registered for their concession. Letters and applications are sent to remind the allotment holder of this process.
If you are applying for an allotment and you would like to apply for a concession you will need to provide recent proof of entitlement. Acceptable proofs include -
- bus pass
- Blue badge
- valid NUS student card
- benefit award letter
If you are interested in growing your own fruit or vegetables but don't want to manage an allotment on your own, why not get involved in a community allotment.
With Environmental and Management Solutions Ltd (EMS) we work with landowners and the community to identify unused pieces of land and turn them into a green space.
The allotments involve all local people, such as -
- community groups
- old and young
to help -
- develop their own grow your own projects
