An allotment is an area of land, which can be rented for growing fruit and vegetables for you and your family.
There are over 1700 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 £53 a year. 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 which entitle them to the leisure bonus pass on their card may be entitled to a discount. To enable the allotment service to become self funding by 2014 there will be a rent increase in November 2013.
We can provide advice on which sites are available and how to get the best out of your allotment, depending on what you want to grow.
We currently have vacancies at Borrowdale Road and Studland Road.
