There are over 1,800 allotment plots on 25 different sites around the city of Southampton, available to rent annually. The cost to rent a site depends on the location and size of the plot. The average standard plot costs around £60 a year.

If paying for an allotment, your card must be registered for 3D Secure for the payment to be successful.

Most allotment sites have a waiting list. When you have reached the top of the waiting list you will be sent a letter offering you whichever plot has become available. You have two weeks in which to view and sign up for the plot offered.

If you are 60 years of age or over, the total rent will automatically be reduced by 20%. Smartcities card holders, who are in receipt of benefits that entitle them to the leisure bonus pass on their card, may be entitled to a discount
