SERVICES PROVIDED BY WROUGHTON PARISH COUNCIL

ALLOTMENTS

The Parish Council’s allotment site in Moormead Road contains over 157 plots of varying sizes, the most common being approx. 125 sq metres (5 perch).  Annual rent is currently £6.05 per 25 sq metres (1 perch).

 

In addition to the obvious benefits of growing your own flowers, fruit and vegetables, having an allotment can also provide a sense of achievement and well-being, along with the chance to learn new skills.

 

It can be great fun for all the family, providing fresh air and exercise. Allotments can also help protect the environment and generate community spirit, offering an opportunity to meet people from all walks of life

 

Our Tenancy Agreement which is signed by both the tenant and the Council sets out the terms and conditions of tenancy.

 

The Council also has Allotment Guidelines.  This document provides guidance and more information relating to the allotments and should be read in conjunction with the Tenancy Agreement.

 

New tenancies are allocated in accordance with our waiting list procedure, details of which can be found in the Allotment Guidelines booklet.

 

An Annual Plot Holder Meeting is held at the end of September. Click here for notes of the last Annual Plot Holders Meeting.
