“An allotment is an area of land, leased either from a private or local authority landlord, for the use of growing fruit and vegetables. In some cases, this land will also be used for the growing of ornamental plants, and the keeping of hens and rabbits.

An allotment is traditionally measured in rods (perches or poles), an old measurement dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. 10 poles is the accepted size of an allotment, the equivalent of 250 square metres or about the size of a doubles tennis court”.

Allotment Information

Let’s delve into the fascinating world of allotments. As a resident with a keen interest in community gardening, you’re in the right place. Here’s what you need to know:

1. Allotments Overview:

  • Allotments are parcels of land designated for individual or communal cultivation. They provide space for growing fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs.
  • These green havens foster community spirit, promote sustainable living, and offer a peaceful escape from urban life.

2. Working in Partnership with the Town Council:

  • Your town council plays a pivotal role in managing allotments. They collaborate with residents, allocate plots, and ensure fair practices.
  • By working together, we create a thriving gardening community.

3. Application Process:

  • If you’re eager to get your hands dirty (in the best way!), complete an allotment application form.
  • Express your interest, specify plot preferences, and submit the form to the town council.
  • Once approved, you’ll receive your own piece of fertile soil to nurture and cultivate.

An electronic allotment application is available in the forms section, alternatively you can get a blank form from the town council offices.

4. Benefits of Allotments:

  • Fresh Produce: Grow your own organic fruits and veggies.
  • Health and Well-Being: Gardening is therapeutic and keeps you active.
  • Community Bonding: Meet fellow gardeners, exchange tips, and share the joy of harvests.
  • Environmental Impact: Allotments contribute to biodiversity and reduce food miles.

5. Next Steps:

  • Reach out to your town council for the allotment application form.
  • Explore the NAS (National Allotment Society) resources for valuable insights on allotment management1.
    Remember, your journey into allotment gardening promises not only fresh produce but also a sense of fulfilment and connection with nature. Happy planting! For more details, you can visit the National Allotment Society’s page on allotments management.
