There are over 1,700 allotment plots on 23 different sites around the city, 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.
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 2 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.
