Calling All Budding Gardeners

A selection of fresh vegetables

Are you interested in growing your own fruit and vegetables, but need more garden space?

If so, have you ever considered an allotment?

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 9 allotment sites within the Council’s area which come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  The size of the plot will determine the amount of rent charged.  The standard charge is 50p per square meter, but a 50% discount is applied if over half of the plot is cultivated and maintained.

Anyone wishing to rent an allotment should, download an Application Form from our Allotments page, alternatively please contact the Town Council on 01388 609852 or email council@bishopauckland-tc.gov.uk
