Allotments and plots

Garden plots

Garden plots are areas of council land that has been divided into plots for domestic garden purposes.

There are a number of sites throughout the borough. The annual rent payable varies between £50.00 - £187.50, depending on the size of the plot (the average is £78.00).

There are no facilities provided, such as water or electricity.

The majority of sites have waiting lists - if you wish to be placed on a waiting list please contact us and provide your name, address and contact telephone number, you will be added to the relevant list.

If you do not have a site in mind, you will be added onto the waiting lists nearest to where you live (a maximum of 3 sites).

Available plots are offered in chronological order according to the waiting lists kept for each site. Some plots are let with the properties to which they back onto and may be transferred, if the property is sold.

Please note, the length of the waiting list varies from site to site and some sites have a greater turnover than others, therefore we cannot estimate the waiting time.
