Can I buy a composting cone?

Can I get my plot strimmed and rotavated by the Council?

Dunstable Town Council provide a strim and rotavation service.   We will issue an invoice to you and once it has been paid we will arrange for one of our Grounds Team to strim and rotavate your allotment.  For further information, or to request a strim and rotavate please contact us.

Is there a Waiting List?

Due to the heavy demand for plots, Dunstable Town Council operates a waiting list. Any offer of a tenancy will remain open for 14 days.  If you do not respond within this time-span, the plot will be offered to someone else on the waiting list.

You should be aware that Dunstable Town Council will only make TWO plot offers.  If you refuse this plot AND any which may be offered subsequently, you will be removed from the waiting list unless you contact us stating you wish to remain on it, in which case, as you will have refused two plots, you will be moved to the bottom of the waiting list.  If you do not reply to any plot offer, you will be removed immediately from the waiting list.

What is the length of Tenancy?

Allotment invoices are sent out in December and for the tenancy for the year from January to December.
