The Town Council has 101 allotment plots which it rents to individuals and organisations on a site at The Basins.
There is usually a waiting list of people who would like to rent an allotment. If suitable sites can be found, the Council would like to provide more allotments.
Allotment holders are bound by a set of standards to look after the upkeep of their plots and if they fail to do so they may lose the tenancy. The Council’s Environment & Heritage Committee has oversight of the management of the Basins Allotments and takes recommendations from the Basins Allotments Advisory Board.
Each year, the Council awards six prizes to tenants for things such as the ‘best kept’ allotment.
If you would like to explore renting an allotment, please contact the council on [email protected] to register your interest.
