Allotments

Central Swindon North Parish Council are responsible for and manage 9 Leisure Garden Sites within the Parish area. They are as follows:

Akers Way, SN2 2NF
Churchward Avenue (Northern Road, SN2 1NZ)
Cheney Manor (Kiln Lane)
Crowdys Hill (Wheeler Avenue, SN2 7HN)
Gorse Hill (Wheeler Avenue, SN2 7HN)
Pickards Field (off Pinehurst Road, SN2 1QP)
Redcliffe Street, SN2 2BZ
Rodbourne Farm (Barnfield Close, SN2 2DP)
Somerford Close (off Penhill Drive, SN2)

The Allotments are an important asset to our Parish, we have almost 700 plots available with total occupancy running at around 85%.
Our extensive allotment service provides a wide range of benefits to residents, as well as providing vital green space in a predominantly urban environment.

Allotments are not just a way of producing low cost food; allotments offer our residents a viable means or recreation involving healthy exercise, embracing the fun and challenge of growing vegetables, fruit, and flowers, raising livestock and meeting new likeminded people.

The Parish Council will be embarking on an extensive improvement programme and developing a new Parish Vision for 2020, of which allotments will be an integral part.
The Parish Council have recently appointed an Allotments Officer who will be joining us mid-late May 2018. They will be helping to develop the vision and build meaningful relationships with new and existing plot holders and our partners as well carrying out much needed maintenance and repairs across the Leisure Garden sites.

The number of allotments plots available at each of the 9 sites varies as does the number of people on the waiting list for a plot.
Pickards Field is a very large site with a large number of plots available but some of these are quite over grown. 
The cost of an allotment plot is £61.20 per year for a full size plot and £30.60 per year for a half size plot which is approx. 25sqm. The billing year runs from October thro' September.
