Allotments Update



We have been advised of an Avian Flu outbreak in the area - if you have poultry on your allotment please read the information on the link below and ensure that you comply with all the necessary requirements


Avian Flu information




  • The allotments will remain open for tenants to still come to work on and cultivate, as long as they are not having to self-isolate or are showing symptoms of the virus.
  • Only the named tenant or those family members which they live with should go onto plots
  • No more than two adults should be on an allotment plot at any one time.
  • All social distancing rules must be maintained at all times when on site.
  • Extra care should be taken in sanitising hands when opening and closing any entrance gates.
  • Please stay on your own allotment plot when visiting the site and do not enter another plot under any circumstance.


Any resident of the Parish wishing to rent an allotment is requested to contact the Clerk to the Council for an application form, or complete the form on this website, and return it to our office. All allotment tenants are provided with a Rule Book, which provides details of cultivation rules, rules regarding sheds and livestock, etc.  Evidence will need to be provided to confirm residency within the Parish.

Annual Inspections

Inspections of plots are carried out throughout the year.  The first inspection of 2021 was held in June. Details of further inspections will be shown here when known 


If you are interested in having an allotment on any of our sites please contact the office or complete a form attached below.  We currently have long waiting lists but any resident with their name on the list will be contacted when their name gets to the top of the list.  Please ensure we are kept up to date with contact details.
