The Allotments are an important asset to our Parish, we have over 600 plots available with total occupancy currently running at around 98%.

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 of 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 employ an Allotments Officer who carries out maintenance and repairs across the Leisure Garden sites, builds meaningful relationships with new and existing plot holders and our partners and will be helping to develop the 2020 vision.

The number of allotment plots available at each of the 9 sites varies.
