How much does it cost?


It all depends on the size of the plot and whether the allotment site is provided with a water supply or not. As a general guide sites without water are around £20 and sites with water around £40. The allotment office will be able to confirm the price for your chosen site. (If you are in receipt of a state pension, unemployed, registered disabled, a person on low income or a student on a grant you may qualify for a 50% discount)
