Our allotments are extremely popular and there may be a waiting list at all sites. For more information on how to be included on the waiting list please see below or call 01425 473883.
Allotments are provided for any resident, over the age of 18, who lives within the Ringwood parish boundary, subject to availability.
A chronological waiting list is kept and allotments will only be let to residents, over the age of 18 of neighbouring parishes, if there are no Ringwood residents on the list.
With effect from October 2015, a ground deposit of £24 is required at the start of an allotment tenancy.
For new non-resident applicants, the charge will be double that of residents. *The Upper Kingston fees includes the recharge for the annual cost of vermin control arrangements at the allotments.
Each site has its own water supply. Southampton Road, Upper Kingston and Crow Arch Lane sites have lockable gates. Tenants are provided with a key for a £10 deposit.
All plots are automatically judged in the annual competition. Winners will be notified and awards given out each September. See this years' competition winners here
We are happy for you to grow whatever you want on your allotment within reason and within the law! We would also ask that you give consideration to your neighbours when deciding what to plant.
A mini plot is approximately 6m x 4m and a single plot is approximately 20m x 6m.
