Allotment site information



There are 172 plots on the Sandridge Road site, some full plots, some half. There is a waiting list and new tenants are initially allocated a half plot.

There is an opportunity for you to arrange a visit to the site with a committee member to view empty plots before deciding whether to rent one.

Water is available via 17 taps/tanks, from April to October.

Sheds & greenhouses need council permission.

Leaves for making your own leaf mulch are delivered to the car park in late autumn by the council. Please help yourself.

Bonfires are only allowed between October and March on Tuesdays and the first Saturday of the month after 12pm.

More FAQs are answered on the Council website or in the Council allotment rules (pdf).



Gate Ė please shut and lock the gate when leaving the site if there are no other cars in the car park. This is especially important during school holidays. Please donít worry that you may have locked another tenant in, everyone should have a key!
