Butternut squash seedlings ready to be planted out


Please note that our two Allotment Sites, Yew Tree Road & Ridgewaye, remain open, but you are advised to follow all the government recommendations during the current crisis. The following link offers some guidance and support.

NSALG Covid-19 Support 


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the increased interest in outside spaces and gardening, there are currently no allotment plots available on the Yew Tree Road and Ridgewaye Allotment Sites.  We now have a waiting list though and once on the list, you will be offered a plot as soon as one is available.


Allotment plots are available to rent by residents of Southborough and High Brooms situated within our parish boundary.  If you are not sure if you fall within our boundary, you can contact us and we will advise you, or you can find maps of the wards on the What We Do page.

We have introduced some smaller plots, which are called starter plots. They are only 2.5 rods approximately and are for those who don’t wish to commit to a larger plot straight away. However, please be aware that if you want a larger plot in the future, you will need to give up the starter plot and move to a vacant plot from the list.  There are only 4 starter plots on each site at present.  Plots range from 2.5 – 12 rods in size.

The current fee for an allotment is £6.02 per rod. 

The fee will increase to £6.21 per rod from 1 April 2021.

If  you want to join the waiting list or require any further details, then please contact the Council Offices on 01892 529176 and leave a message.  We are currently working from home, but we do check the answerphone.  Alternatively, please email Ed at:
