Southampton allotments

There are over 1,800 allotment plots on 27 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 £63.50 a year.

Our allotments are for use by people who live within, or in a mile of, the Southampton City Boundary.

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.

We are aware that customers using cards issued by Nat West and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) are experiencing issues when making payment through our web site. We apologise for the inconvenience and advise using a card issued by an alternative bank until this is resolved. If you have a payment that is interrupted or appears to fail, we recommend that you first check the payment with your bank before attempting to make the payment again.
