Allotment Sites

We have three locations; Hambleton Way, Prospect Terrace & West Chilton Terrace.

Our Allotments come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

The size of the plot will determine the amount of rent charged. Rents for plots are decided upon by the Town Council and are reviewed annually.

The rent runs from April to March.

More Information

We aim to inspect ALL 3 times a year. Planned to be in April, July and September. Some of these inspections will be carried out using drone footage. If your allotment is felt to be in a poor state, not being used for the correct purposes or contravening any of the conditions of the tenancy agreement, you will receive a letter informing you of this and what you need to do to bring it up to standard.

The areas that will be looked at during an inspection are:
• General condition
• Rubbish on the plot
• Hazardous objects / materials
• Percentage cultivated
• Structure condition

If we are unable to view or access your allotment, we will contact you to gain access. Those allotments which need to be improved would be inspected again to ensure the work has been done and the allotment is satisfactory. Please note, anyone not keeping their allotments to a good standard may be given notice to quit.
