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 and 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
A ‘Waiting List’ is held for each of our allotment site and allocations are made on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, determined by the date the application is received.
It is not possible to determine an average 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 these allotment sites, please complete the application form below.
Applicants are advised to familiarise themselves with the Allotment Rules and Regulations.
