As part of our commitment to encouraging our residents to lead a more active, green and healthy lifestyle, we manage seven allotment sites within the Borough.
- Boyatt Wood, off St Catherine's Road (65 plots with water, toilets and communal stores)
- Burns Close (24 plots with water and toilets)
- Chestnut Avenue (77 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
- Lakeside (80 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
- Monks Way (26 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
- Tennyson Road (14 plots with water and toilets)
- Woodside Avenue (47 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
Allotments are only available to Borough residents. Priority for allotment allocation is given to town centre residents.
Currently there is a 1-5 year waiting list for an allotment plot, dependant on site. All applications will be added to the waiting list and you will be contacted once a plot becomes available.
Anyone living outside the town centre should contact their local Town/Parish Councils to see if they have allotment plots available. Applications for residents living outside the Borough will not be considered.
Plots are measured in rods with a cost of £11 per rod.
- Tenancy set-up - £30 one-off fee.
- Annual Rent is a maximum of £55 per year, per plot (depending on plot size).
A 50% reduction in rent is available to anyone aged 60 and over.
Allotment sites are managed by the StreetScene Allotment Supervisor and nominated site representatives.
