Cost of an allotment

New allotment plot charges come into effect in October each year and are rounded to the nearest pound. We send out invoices annually at the end of September.

TypeSizeAnnual cost (October 2020-September 2021)
Very small plot
(Only available at
Cherrywood Road and Birchett Road)
Two-and-a-half rods - equivalent of approximately 63 square metres£36
Small plotApprox five rods - equivalent of 125 square metres£50
Large plotBetween five and ten rods - equivalent of up to 250 square metres£71

Annual cost increases

Following a review by the Leisure and Youth Panel in 2015/16, an increase of 20% per year on allotment plots was agreed for the next few years, to help reduce the current subsidy. The charge for a two-and-a-half rod plot (including the Cherrywood Road site) will be frozen for two years in 2020/21 and 2021/22.

From 2021/22 all other allotment plots will be increased by the Retail Price Index.

Sheds

If you are already an allotment tenant, you can erect a small shed (up to 1.8 metres x 1.2 metres) on your plot, by completing our pdf icon Shed application form [325kb] and posting it to us using the contact details on this page.

We will then confirm with you that you can erect the shed.
