Garden plots

Service information

These are areas of council land that has been divided into plots for gardening purposes.

There are a number of sites throughout the borough. The rent is payable annually and varies between £25-£150 depending on the size of the plot, with an average of £62.50.

A 25% reduction for pensioners and registered disabled people is given on the annual rent.  Proof is required to receive a concession and is only available from 1st April each year.

There are no facilities such as water or electricity provided.

Plots are allocated in chronological order according to the waiting lists kept for each site, although some are let with the properties to which they back onto and may be transferred.

The majority of sites have waiting lists, if you wish to be placed on a waiting list please provide your name address and contact telephone number and you will be added to the relevant list.  If you do not have a site in mind you will be added onto the waiting lists nearest to where you live. 

Contact us to have your name added on to the waiting list, please note that the length of the waiting list varies from site to site and some sites have a greater turnover than others, therefore waiting time cannot be estimated.
