The allotment sites vary in size from a fairly small site at Pascomb Road to the much larger Meadway site.   The majority of plots on all sites are ‘small’ (approximately 5 pole/125 m2 ), although there are also a limited number of ‘large’, ‘quarter’ and ‘mini’ plots available across the sites.

As demand for allotment plots is high, the Council has a waiting list for those who are interested in taking on a tenancy.
