Apply for an allotment

Find an allotment to rent, see charges per year, and find out how to contact the relevant site manager.

If you'd like to rent an allotment, you'll need to contact the relevant allotment site manager. There is usually a waiting list, but you can find their contact details below.

Allotments are managed in one of three ways:

  • directly by us
  • in partnership with an allotment association
  • fully managed by an allotment association

Allotment charges

Size of plot Charge per year (1 October to 30 September)
Full plot £93.40
Half plot £46.88
Third of a plot £31.19 (pro rata)

The charges are for allotments we fully manage, and include all water costs. Charges for other allotments are set by the relevant association.

If you receive a means-tested benefit, you'll get a 33% discount on these charges.
