Below you can find out more about each allotment site. What facilities the site has, whether there are any vacancies and how much it would cost per rod per year. A rod is 25 square metres and a typical plot is ten rods. Each site has a site rep who can assist you when taking on a plot and is the first point of contact for plot holders. The site reps work with us to maintain and improve allotment sites. Use the Google map to find out where each allotment site located.

We currently have vacancies at Studland Road and Borrowdale Road.

To apply for an allotment use the online form above, call into Gateway, email allotments@southampton.gov.uk or telephone 023 8083 3007.
