Allotment annual costs

The basic cost for an allotment is £7.75 per 25 square meters per year (1 pole).

The average size of a plot is between 125 square meters (5 poles) and 250 square meters (10 poles), but we do our best to suit everyone's needs, with smaller plots available on most sites. A typical plot rental therefore ranges from £38.75-£77.50 per year.
