Butternut squash seedlings ready to be planted out

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. Plots range from 2.5 – 10 rods in size.

The current fee for an allotment is £6.65 per rod. 

The fee will increase to £6.98 per rod from 1 April 2024.


If  you would like to join the waiting list or require any further details, please contact the Council Offices:
