Allotment costs

Plots can be rented directly from the council for a small annual fee. A plot with water only will vary from £20 to £60 per annum depending on plot size.

Some sites have both water and sheds, some have only water, and some have no facilities. The costs reflect the facilities available.

*A rod, equivalent to 25m², was a traditional Saxon land measure and survives into the 21st century.

Once you have a plot you will be sent an invoice for the annual payment around December or January.
