There are 18 council-managed allotment sites, 26 more run on our behalf by local allotment associations, and other sites owned by parish and town councils (see the tables at the bottom of the page).

If you have regular helpers on your site please let us know who they are. This will help in the event of any future tenancy transfer requests.


  • tenancies cost £10.33 per 100 square metres and are paid annually
  • rent is due on 1st April each year, tenants wishing to give up their plot must do so in advance of this date
  • a cost reduction of 25 percent is available for the over-60s
  • where sites have metered water, an additional cost is applied - this cost is not subject to discount

Livestock - chickens, ducks, geese and rabbits and pigeons – can be kept on some sites, but only after written permission has been gained from the Allotments Office.  All livestock has to be kept in accordance with current legislation. 

Dogs and horses are not allowed to be kept on our allotment sites.

Pests and vermin

Tenants are expected to take reasonable precautions to discourage pests such as keeping the plot clean and tidy and preventing access to potential food sources such as animal feed. On council-managed sites, the removal of pests remains our responsibility. If you have problems with mice, rats and other vermin, please notify us as soon as possible so we can address the problem.

Sites not managed by us may have their own arrangements in place. Please check with the governing association.
