Allotments provide an excellent opportunity for people to grow their own produce and at the same time get plenty of fresh air and exercise. Produce grown can contribute to a healthy balanced diet. It is also a great social activity.
The Town Council is responsible for 8 allotment sites in the town which come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The size of the plot will determine the amount of rent charged.
Some of our allotment sites are managed with the help of active associations sites, one is completely self-managed, the rest is managed by the Town Council
You can view an interactive Google Map with the eight site locations:
- Broken Banks Allotment
- Edge Hill Allotment Association
- Pollards Allotment Association
- South Church Lane Allotment Association
- Tindale Crescent Allotment Association
- Toronto Allotment
- Mill Race Allotment
- Woodhouse Close Allotment
Allotments are offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis and a waiting list is held for each allotment site. It is not possible to determine a waiting time, as plots usually become available as and when an existing tenant decides to give up their tenancy.
If you are interested in renting a plot at one of the above sites, please complete the application form below. The current Allotment Rules and Regulations are also available for further information.
