The Council provides over 100 allotments. These are at Quatre Bras, Wydon Park and Dene Park.
The Council has three allotment sites: one at Quatre Bras (near the Broadway) one at Dene Park (rear of Monk’s Terrace) and one at Wydon Park (south of Wydon reservoir). Many plots at Quatre Bras have been halved as the normal size plot proved too large for some people to keep under cultivation. If you put your name on the waiting list for a plot at Quatre Bras you have the choice of requesting a whole plot or a half size one.
Allotments have become very popular and there is strong demand so unfortunately the Council currently has a long waiting list.
Tenancies are yearly and commence each 1st October. Allotment rents are reviewed by the Council annually and any rental changes take effect on the tenancy anniversary date. The rents due in October 2020 were £64 for a full plot (£32 for a half plot) and will increase to £65 (£35 for a half plot) in 2021.
If you have anything you wish to have dealt with urgently, please contact the Town Clerk, Jane Kevan, who has day to day responsibility for the allotment sites. She can be contacted on 01434 609575 or 07710 053732.
