Waiting List update - mid July 2021 - the current waiting list for an allotment is 75.  We have recently been allocating plots to those who applied in July 2020.  It could be an 18-24 month wait for new applicants.

The annual rent is £6.00 per rod (approx. 25sq metres) so, a full plot of 10 rods would cost £60.00. Each year tenants also pay £5 association fees which includes both membership of the local association EDAA and the National Association NSALG.

At the start of a tenancy a £6.00 per rod plot deposit (£60 for a full plot of 10 rods), £5 gate key deposit and £5 water key deposit are payable. These are refunded provided that the plot is in a lettable condition and keys returned to the association when tenants leave.

Rent renewal letters are sent out by e-mail or post, in early January. Payment is always due by 31st January and payments made after this date will subject to a late payment fee of £10 per plot. Payment can be made direct into the association’s bank account, by cheque or in cash at either shop.

Each site is run by a site coordinator who meets new tenants and shows them around. The association has a clear set of rules that coordinators use to ensure that each site runs safely and efficiently.
