Renting a plot


There are more than 200 plots on the site. They vary in size slightly but most measure 200 square metres or more. The soil is fertile and sandy. Water is supplied by means of hand-operated pumps.


Because we have no paid officials, rents have been kept surprisingly low. All tenants must be members of the Royal Paddocks Allotments Association and, after payment of an initial joining fee of £24, annual rent for a full plot is £24 and £12 for a half plot. According to the constitution, two members may share a full or half plot.

Allotment catchment area


This ruling does not affect current plotholders. If you already have a plot, you are entitled to retain your tenancy, wherever you live.


Plotholders (joint or single) may rent a maximum of one full plot equivalent.


If you already have the equivalent of one full plot, you will NOT be allowed to put your name down for any more.
If you have a half plot, you WILL be able to apply for an additional half plot. Any additional half plot must be adjacent to the original half plot and the application must be supported by a good inspection record for the existing half plot.
